Glass, more than any other material awakens our imagination. It can change appearance and colour
, be strong and fragile, sharp and soft at the same time. Glass can even change a small locality’s future –just like what it did with Orrefors
is a locality situated in Nybro
Municipality, Kalmar County, Sweden. Now, the locality is known to be the founding place of the internationally acclaimed Orrefors
, maker of utility glass and art glass made of crystal since 1898. The place and the glass are so intertwined that if you are in Sweden and you do have the possibility to go to Orrefors
, there’s no way you can complete your visit without taking a tour in the glass fabric.
But if in some particular circumstance, you can’t, then worry not, you can still have the timeles Scandinavian elegance by visiting Schiffman’s at Friendly Center – where Orrefor’s new collections of utility glassware produced in large-volume series and limited-edition art glass, are reqularly presented.
