Raspberry– A series by Anne Nilsson
Raspberry is one of Orrefors’s most beloved classics. The many round ‘drupelets’ that give it its raspberry shape create a soft crystal feeling and a glittering brilliance that is highly recognisable. Designer Anne Nilsson is now expanding the series with glorious vases for tulips and cut flowers – but they’re just as beautiful on their own. At the same time, frosted-glass versions of the entire series are being introduced, which are lovely when combined with the clear glass pieces. The frosted glass creates a gentler ambience with its velvety glow.
Anne Nilsson (b. 1953). After being trained in glass and ceramics at the University College of Arts, Crafts and Design in Stockholm, she became a designer at Höganäs Keramik AB. Since 1982 she has created several popular glass series for Orrefors. The Raspberry series and the Celeste candleholders are just a few. In fact, she’s received the Excellent Swedish Design award for 15 different product series. She creates unexpected, simple forms that add a touch of beauty to everyday life.
