Intermezzo– A series by Erika Lagerbielke
”The stemware range Intermezzo is about curiosity and love. All my love for the craftsmanship is enclosed in the blue Intermezzo drop. The glasses keep a secret, a mystery that looks like an exclamation sign. The stemware range Intermezzo is one of the rst ranges I designed for Orrefors, it was launched in 1985 and turned 30 in 2015. How could I have imagi- ned that Intermezzo would become a much loved classics and one of Orrefors bestsellers of all time, with over 10 million glasses sold worldwide?” - Erika Lagerbielke
Erika Lagerbielke is the queen of Orrefors stemware. No other designer has created as many series of stemware for Orrefors and no one has matched her success in doing so. Her successes include Intermezzo, Merlot and Difference, which have all received fine accolades for their designs.
The key to Erika’s success is probably her great love of glassmaking craftsmanship and her knowledge of the different characteristics of various drinks. When creating new series, Erika also likes to work with wine experts. Her latest stemware series, Divine, is the Orrefors celebration of the Royal Wedding in 2010;
Erika also designed the gift given to the Crown Princess Couple Victoria and Daniel by the Swedish Parliament and Government. These series are naturally also designed to enhance the way in which all the aromas and tastes of the drinks are perceived.
