Designer

Edvin Öhrström (1906-1994) was a Swedish visual artist, sculptor and glass artist born in Burlöv. He studied at the Art Academy and Tekniska Skolan in Stockholm and under Fernand Legér in Paris, etc. From 1936-1957 he was active at Orrefors glassworks. Together with Vicke Lindstrand, Öhrström helped develop the ariel glass, an innovative technology that was presented at the World Exhibition in Paris in 1937 and for which Orrefors has become internationally known. Öhrström also designed cast glass for Lindshammar's glassworks and has created the work "Kristallvertikalaccent", a glass pillar at Sergels Torg in Stockholm, inaugurated in 1974. Today, the early ariel glass pieces from Orrefors are among the most sought after glass produced in Sweden.
