Sarek– A series by Lena Bergström
Orrefors and Volvo Cars have joined forces to create an exclusive crystal collection. Created by Lena Bergström – one of Sweden’s most acclaimed designers – and Volvo Cars’ award-winning design team, this handmade crystal glassware represents the best of modern Scandinavian design. “When I was growing up in the north of Sweden, we would go on walks in the woods and take food in small wooden boxes made of plaited birch bark, traditional to the area,” says Lena Bergström. “I used this distinctive diamond pattern as inspiration for the facets on these pieces.”
Lena Bergström (b. 1961) is a successful designer of both textiles and glass. She has received numerous public commissions and has won Excellent Swedish Design awards for six of her glass collections. Lena received her artistic education at the College of Arts, Crafts and Design in Stockholm. She became captivated by glass and has been af liated to Orrefors since 1994. She has an unerring sense of design; her work, soft of line yet graphically eloquent, represents a new generation of expression.
