Designers/Martti Rytkönen | 11
Martti Rytkönen’s glass collections always reflect the true spirit of Orrefors – even when he experiments with shape and glassmaking techniques. He is fascinated by the possibilities of glass and likes to form the clear crystal into objects with a narrative. He aims to tell us something about the material, how it can be soft, strong and light but at the same time, heavy and hard. Martti thinks that glass is sensual and pleasing. We understand what he means when we see his crystal creations that can have the simplest shapes imaginable, without being hard or formal. Martti’s products are always permeated by timelessness and tangible high quality. This applies to all his creations, be they clear, cut crystal items in his collection, or coloured limited-edition vases.
