The Orrefors Intermezzo range of glasses, with its blue or satin white drop, is turning thirty years old. Intermezzo has been loved by generations who have chosen this particular glass for their celebrations. We are celebrating this 30th anniversary with Intermezzo Air, a new glass series featuring a platinum-gilded base and a translucent drop in tribute to the clarity of the crystal glass. Intermezzo Air will be launched as a champagne glass, a balance glass and a wine glass. Air is one of the elements of glass that and the tradition of decorating glass with air bubbles were my inspiration as I designed the Intermezzo Air anniversary glass. The silvery light reflection of the drop meets the double foot ring painted by hand in genuine platinum. Intermezzo has a strong character, both with and without color. - Erika Lagerbielke, designer and Professor in Glass Design.

As early as 1726, Lars Johan Silversparre received permission to build a furnace and a smithy at "the beautiful river that flows into Lake Orrenas". The iron works was given the name Orrefors, which means "the Orre waterfall".

Orrefors' international breakthrough came at the Paris Exhibition of 1925. From the Hotel de Ville, the Town Hall of Paris, the Swedish pavilion borrowed a magnificent glass goblet designed by Simon Gate that had been presented as a gift to the City of Paris from the City of Stockholm in 1922. The goblet became a sensation, and the prestigious Grand Prix award was given to Orrefors and its designers. The glassblowers and engravers received gold medals. Many of the imposing glas objects from Orrefors were created for special occasions, or to special order. The motifs in the engraved glass of that period may seem somewhat grandiloquent today, but the technique was consummately realized through skilled craftsmanship and the light, clear quality of the glass.

The ambition for all glass from Orrefors is the highest possible quality and exquisite design. This is the same objective that applied more than eighty years ago, when Johan Ekman traveled the long road through the forest, past the quiet farms behind their stonewalls...
And if you have once traveled this road, through dark spruce forests, across the open meadows, past the stone walls, past the shining lakes and the sparking brooks, you too will understand what makes it all possible. This where the world's most beautiful glass is created.
