Swedish Art Glass


KOSTA BODA is synonymous with innovative design that has a lot of personality. The art glass designers create both beautiful utility items and art glass that are exhibited and sold across the world. Founded in 1742 Kosta Boda is the oldest Swedish glassworks and still produces high quality glass that stands the test of time. It has kept all of its historical charm and traditional manufacturing and also developed cutting edge modern techniques that broaden the expressive range of the designers at Kosta Boda.

ORREFORS Since 1898, art and crystal glass for everyday use has been produced under the brand of Orrefors. At our glassworks in Kosta, our skilled glassworkers are joined by several of Sweden’s most prestigious designers in developing the design, craftsmanship and new techniques.

Orrefors is one of the official suppliers to the Nobel Prize Banquet and Purveyors to the H.M. the King of Sweden. Gunnar Cyrén designed the Nobel series to mark the 90th anniversary of the Nobel Prize Banquet in 1991. Since then, Nobel Laureates and royalties have raised Orrefors Nobel glasses in the toasts at the banquet in Stockholm City Hall in December each year.


Designer Tip!

Mix and Match your snaps (shot) glasses in different sizes, shapes and colours. The snaps glasses you inherited from grandma will set the tone and look just great on your dinner table among your more modern glasses.  Mix simple classic snaps glasses with colourful and whimsical ones - anything goes. Have some fun collecting different snaps glasses and even more fun to use them all.
