Street– A series by Jan Johansson
In autumn 2006, Jan Johansson introduced us to Street, a series of bar items with an outspoken masculine air – indeed, its square-cut clear decor and contrasting black details seem practically decadent. Street feature the skilfully rendered cut decor inspired by the streets of New York that makes this collection so successful. Street is a must for any home bar!
Jan Johansson (b. 1942) came to Orrefors in 1969 after training as a silversmith in Stockholm at the College of Arts, Crafts and Design. As an artist, he is interested in refining the optical effects of pure, sculptural crystal, as in his cut-glass horizon, arizona and his stemware series street. Cut crystal sculptures set on a solid marble stand are an important component of his art glass production. Jan Johansson has actively sought new means of expression and has broadened the range of the Fuga technique.
