Discus– A series by Lars Hellsten
The popular Discus tealight holder is now available in steel, gold and frosted colors. Designed expressly to herald the World Athletics Championships in 1995, inspired by its namesake, the discus is polished above and patterned beneath, the finish sparkling in the candle glow like an Olympic flame.
Lars Hellsten (b. 1933) studied sculpture at the Collage of Arts, Crafts and design i Stockholm before coming to Orrefors in 1972. He is also the designer behind such collections as CORONA and ODYSSEY and the heart-shaped AMOUR and MY HEART. Nature clearly inspire his art glass, too, including many grand pieces well suited for public places. His glass is characteristically massive and forceful, whether it be cast, mould-blown or free-blown.
