Anna Ehrner designs her first collection for Orrefors with a new suite of stemware.
“When I set the table for a dinner party with good food and drinks I want the glasses to be special, to feel Unique. They should be perfect to drink from, but also carry a strong identity; it should not just be any random glass…The cup is held by a stem that I think expresses purity, strength and elegance with a design expression that works in most settings – from the minimalistic table setting to the more decorative one. I have worked with a strict shape that should float between the cup and the foot. It should lure you into getting engaged in the glass, you want to turn it to see how the light plays, you feel how it feels in your hand, and then you lift it to your mouth and experience the balance of the glass. A table set with the Unique glasses feels exclusive, but yet harmonized, since the sizes of the glasses go so well together.”
The pieces in the stemware glass series Unique are made in several different steps. First, the characteristic leg is cast in a mould; the cup is blown separately. The two are then connected, and the beautiful glass is formed.
