  • Design

    Gunnar Cyrén's Popglas was an equally colourful and radical element in the conservative glass world when they were launched in 1967. He found the bold colours when visiting the public aquarium in Copenhagen to see fishes and find inspiration for new, unexpected colour combinations. “They´re attractive,” he says “but defy all the laws of colour theory”.

    Gunnar Cyrén

    Gunnar Cyrén (1931–2013) was schooled at Konstfack University of Arts, Craft and Design in Stockholm, where he graduated top of his class, with the highest grade ever issued to a student at the Metal Art Programme.

    In the late 1950’s he was invited to work for Orrefors, which turned out to be a lucky stroke for the glassworks. In 1966 he received the Lunning Prize – Scandinavia’s most prestigious design award at the time. Two years later Gunnar Cyrén became the artistic director for the whole of Orrefors.

    As soon as 1970, however, he established his own studio in his hometown Gävle. Here, Gunnar Cyrén expanded into silversmithing and eventually designed the crystal glasses and cutlery for the famous Nobel Prize ceremonies.

  • Sustainability and manufacturing

    Material

    Blown Glass

    In 1967 the glassblowers at Orrefors, Sweden, made the first “Popglas”, using 16th century glassworks methods. And this is the very same procedure used today.

    Master glassblowers Stefan and Mikael Erlandsson are brothers with over 30 years of experience from the glassworks in Småland. They now handle the production at their own establishment Ulven Art Glass, in the outskirts of Uppsala in Sweden.
