Orrefors and Volvo Cars have joined forces to create an exclusive crystal collection.

Created by Lena Bergström – one of Sweden’s most acclaimed designers – and Volvo Cars’ award-winning design team, this handmade crystal glassware represents the best of modern Scandinavian design.

“When I was growing up in the north of Sweden, we would go on walks in the woods and take food in small wooden boxes made of plaited birch bark, traditional to the area,” says Lena Bergström. “I used this distinctive diamond pattern as inspiration for the facets on these pieces.”

The clarity and sharpness of each piece owes much to the craftsmanship of the Swedish glassmaker Orrefors. They also serve as a reflection of the clarity and precision of Volvo Cars’ design.

This latest collection marks the continuation of a collaboration that first brought these renowned Swedish companies together in the creation of the crystal gear selector in Volvo Cars’ Twin Engine hybrid models.

Lena Bergström is a successful designer of both textiles and glass. She has received numerous public commissions and has won Excellent Swedish Design awards for six of her glass collections. Lena received her artistic education at the College of Arts, Crafts and Design in Stockholm.
