good to know
Tempered glass should be handled with care! A damaged edge or a scratched surface can cause the glass to break suddenly – but only into small pieces, seldom into sharp fragments.
Wash this product before using it for the first time.

Designer thoughts

Designers Pia Amsell and Barbro Berlin
”BACKIG dinnerware is square but at the same time has round, soft lines. When we designed the dinnerware we wanted to create an organic shape that reflects the light in a way that gives the dishes a deep black colour. Both the colour and the shape means the food stands out strikingly against the dark glossy surface – and we hope that BACKIG will inspire many creative and personalised table settings. The dinnerware is also made from sturdy and durable tempered glass."

Setting the table with reused glass

"Using more sustainable materials in all our products is something that we strive for," says Nanette Weisdal, who works with sustainability at IKEA. "It's in the IKEA DNA." This has brought us products made of reused materials, like BACKIG glassware.

In glass production, scrap is inevitable. The trick is to make use of it. "Sometimes material is cut off to create a finished product, and sometimes it breaks or has something wrong with it—like a bubble or a defect—so it's rejected," says Daniel Stjernqvist, an engineer who’s specialized in glass for many years. "This is then crushed and goes back into the furnace again to melt."

Less expensive than stoneware

Clear glass can be reused to make clear glass, but the dusky deep purple tint of BACKIG is characteristic of when different coloured glass is melted together and reused to make something new. The result is often called black glass. "Black glass is less expensive to produce than black stoneware," says Daniel. "So we could offer an alternative to customers and lower the price."

Strict standards for food contact

But even more important is securing safety. The glass scraps that make BACKIG never leaves the factory, meaning they come from an environment that we know meets our strict standards and requirements. Since BACKIG comes in contact with food, this is particularly important. "BACKIG is good thinking," says Daniel. "The material is there and it's safe, so we should do something good with it."
