Orrefors 125 year - home visit.
Orrefors has always been about looking ahead. In search of new techniques, expressions, forms – and designers. Curious to discover more of the endless possibilities of glass.
From the very beginning, our signature has been to bring together traditional craftsmanship with contemporary visionaries. Combining history with the present – to shape the future. This formula has resulted in some of our greatest successes.
When we now celebrate Orrefors' 125th anniversary, we aim to reach a larger audience than ever before. In addition to relaunching selected parts of our extensive catalog, we are constantly establishing new collaborations with leading designers.
Welcome to follow Orrefors in our work to advance the boundaries of glass and design and through this create iconic products for future generations.
The celebration of Orrefors’ anniversary continues by recognizing one of our most celebrated designers - Erika Lagerbielke. A special focus on the champagne glass in gold, from the iconic Intermezzo collection, providing the Orrefors’ 125th anniversary celebration with an extra festive touch.
Orrefors craftsmen and Erika Lagerbielke have shared a long-standing ambition to add a golden dimension to Intermezzo's characteristic design. Only now have they succeeded – they're all perfectionists – but it was definitely worth the wait. Encased in the crystal-clear glass is now a matte fluid shimmering like gold.
The champagne glasses in gold are favorites of the designer herself, the golden shade shines enough to compete with anything that is poured on top of it. The launch of Intermezzo Gold coincides with no less than three Orrefors anniversaries: 125 years in Sweden, 100 years in America and 40 years of collaboration with Erika Lagerbielke. Four decennia filled with impressive special projects and awards for her stemware collections, such as Difference and Intermezzo. Erika’s fascination with glass started in her childhood and developed into a lifelong relationship with the material and exploration of poetic functionalism. The Intermezzo Gold collection will be extended during autumn 2023.
"I design for all senses. The glass should emphasize the drink, have good balance and also be a delight to the eye."
Sensitivity to the human need for beauty as part of daily life and celebrations has led to the survival of Orrefors glass for over a century. Orrefors continues to produce industrially made glass in addition to design objects of the absolute highest quality. With a focus on the artists, the innovative designs and styles of the 1920s guided the glassworks forward. Today’s artists and designers interpret their own era through glass.
Orrefors' history is the story of how the simplest of raw materials – lime, sand and soda – become magnificent glass objects. The forest was the fuel, the artists made Orrefors glass world-leading.
