|When Peter Svarrer and Holmegaard began collaborating in 1997, it was the start of a fruitful, productive partnership that continues to develop, resulting in new shapes and colors. "When I’m working on producing new designs in glass, I always keep in mind the nature of glass itself, because it suits my mostly organic styling so well. Glass is particularly good at conveying that. What I have in mind might be quite simple, such as for the Cocoon wineglass range, where I wanted to give a sensual experience as you touch the stalk of the glass, and that’s why it has an organic shape."|

Initial production at Holmegaard glassworks began in 1825. Early on, the factory produced only green bottles, but its founder Countess Henriette Danneskiold-Samsøe also wanted to produce clear glass tumblers, and the Bohemian glassblowers were able to manufacture these. A lot has happened since production at Holmegaard glassworks first began. Holmegaard has always managed to stay at the cutting edge, while also appealing to contemporary trends – down through the generations. Today, Holmegaard is both classic and modern – and most recently, we have become the recipients of the coveted Re-brand prize, for revitalising Holmegaard’s graphic identity. A lot has happened over the years, but we still share Henriette’s focus: to create glass with heart and soul, and integrity.
