Designed by Lena Bergström
Lena Bergström is one of Sweden’s most award-winning and productive designers. Art glass, utility glass, lighting, textiles, jewellery and public artworks. Nothing seems impossible for Lena. Together with the skilled glassblowers and mastercutters at Kosta Boda she is constantly challenging the limits of the glass.
„The unique properties of the glass and the craftmanship of the glassworkers always inspires me to great deeds but at the same time I want the end result to look natural and beautiful.“
Inspired by jewels & gemstones
Inspired by her fascination for jewels & gemstones, the Carat series by Lena Bergström consists of extraordinary candle holders as well as vases and high-quality bowls for fruit or other snacks.
“I want them to stand out in the room with sparkling elegance. The grinding is asymmetrical, and the original vase form is ‘eaten up’ by the ground area.“

Standing on solidly crafted feet, they shine even without candlelight. Due to their different heights, the candle holders complement each other perfectly and can be expanded into a whole forest of cut crystal stems. The round vases provide a pleasant contrast and sparkle particularly strongly in the evening due to the flames of the candles.
Typical of the Orrefors brand
The angular, asymmetrical shapes are a reflection on our times with an added touch of Nordic romance. In charming contrast to the slender candlesticks are the roundish flat tea light holders. Their particular design highlights all the postitve qualities of glass. This design technique, typical of the Orrefors brand, is an eye-catcher for any lover of high-quality designed glass objects.
