|Tom Nybroe's (b. 1956) passion for wine and his affinity for perfection inspired Nybroe to the glass series Perfection for Holmegaard. The design and the proportions of the 2006 designed glasses were developed with a lot of caution, with geometric forms and the "Golden Cut" as starting point. The result is a drinking glass series that combined Nybroes specialist know-how with the elegant design of the Holmegaard tradition.|

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.
