Orrefors Lighting History

This pair of vintage Orrefors sconces which have just arrived, inspired us to research the company's sparking past.



Orrefors Glasbruk was founded in Sweden in 1898.



Because of their aesthetic & technical innovations, the Company quickly became known for their production of quality art glass.



The 1920`s & 1930`s saw the emergence of crystal & glass light fixtures as an art form. Between the World Wars, the glass industry flourished.



Orrefors illuminating works of art quickly became the most prestigious types to own. 



The successes of Simon Gate and Edward Hald in Paris in 1925 constituted the start of the long Orrefors tradition of creative design closely combined with innovative craftsmanship.



Orrefors was able to bring on board many talented artists and craftsmen to meet the demand for art glass lighting and also provide a place of refuge for displaced artists affected by the War. 



After World War II, Orrefors sought to expand their lighting department and hired the talented and innovative Swedish lighting designer Carl Fagerlund. This pair of vintage leaf sconces is attributed to Carl Fagerlund.



Carl Fagerlund remained as lead Lighting Designer from 1946 until 1980 when he reached international acclaim with his large lighting installations like the Head Office of General Motors and the Kennedy Center in USA.



He is well known also for his Modernist timeless designs where he combined Neoclassical forms with naturalistic themes. In this example textured glass shades are shaped like acanthus leaves. The result is a clean elegant design which can fit a range of interiors.

Lighting production was paused in the 1980's and resumed in 2006 when Orrefors began a collaboration with the lighting company Zero.



This elegant vintage crystal bowl is by Jan Johansson for Orrefors. Johansson has been with the company since the 1970`s. The design is labeled Fleur pattern (4514-12) and was discontinued in 2000.



The design is reminiscent of a blooming flower or a crown. It has beautiful scalloped edges and faceted sides creating great depth & reflections.



It comes as no surprise that Orrefors chose Karl Lagerfeld for a collaboration to design glassware in 2011. Lagerfeld's designs are Modernly sleek, wafer-thin and geometric.
