For over 100 years, Orrefors has produced utility glass and art glass made of crystal. Orrefors stands for exquisite design and genuine, local craftsmanship. In the glasswork in the Swedish region of Småland, Orrefors works with some of Sweden’s biggest designers to develop and preserve the Swedish glass traditions.
The glasswork of Orrefors was founded in 1898 and has since then specialized in the production of crystal glass with the aim to enrich people’s lives with fine glass art and crystal. Today the production has been moved to the glasswork in Kosta, which is also situated in Småland, Sweden. A great deal of the production is still done by hand and a simple glass is handled by at least 15 different people throughout production before it leaves the glasswork.
In order to expand and develop their assortment, Orrefors works with some of Sweden’s biggest designers, including Erika Lagerbielke, Ingegerd Råman and Lena Bergström. With a great deal of respect for tradition and the complexity of the craftsmanship involved, the designers add to the legacy that is Orrefors glass design.
