Merlot– A series by Erika Lagerbielke
Merlot, created by the unsurpassed designer of glassware series, Erika Lagerbielke, received the Excellent Swedish Design award when it was launched in 1995. The Merlot wine glass’s quiet, contemporary elegance surprises with its concern for the wine’s bouquet and flavour.
Erika Lagerbielke (b. 1960) is a professor of glass design and has collaborated over thirty years with Orrefors. Erika has a sensual and stylish design style with a clear sense of material understanding. – I design for the senses, says Erika. The glass should highlight the drink, have a good balance and also be a delight to the eye. The range Intermezzo is one of her very first products and one of Orrefors best-selling stemware.
