Did You Know?

The cuts on this bowl reference windows, or fönster, in Swedish.


This bowl was a popular model designed by Simon Gate in the 1930s for Orrefors that remained in production well into the 1960s. The thick walls added a weight and practicality to the bowl, while deeply incised vertical lines and half-circle cuts decorating the bowl evoke traditional aesthetics with a modernist flair.
