Swedish glassworks Kosta Boda was founded in 1742 and began by making fine utility glassware including bottles and drinkware; in 1898 the first designer joined the company and established a legacy of working with artists to create art glass and artisan quality glassware. Today the company is part of Orrefors Kosta Boda AB; it continues to develop the expressive power of glass, both artistically and technically, while ensuring that Swedish glass will always be elegant, exciting and of superb quality in both craft and design. The range of functional and decorative art glass products includes bowls, figurines, votive holders, dinnerware, platters, beverage tumblers, double old fashioned glasses, toasting flutes, basket bowls, vases, candlesticks and more. The art glass and glassware is vibrant, bold, innovative and provocative; it stands out and takes center stage in any environment. Kosta Boda is true passion.
