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.”
