Kosta Boda (originally Kosta Glasbruk) was founded in 1742 by two highly decorated soldiers from the army of legendary King Charles XII: Field Marshall Baron Georg Bogislaus Staël von Holstein and Lieutenant General Anders Koskull. Almost three centuries later, the oldest Swedish glassworks company has also grown to become arguably the best in the country.
Backed by a world-class manufacturing process, a team of 15 acclaimed designers and a skillful team of glassblowers, engravers and painters, Kosta Boda’s assortment of functional as well as decorative crystal and glassware will take your breath away.
Kosta Boda’s glasses have long served as the industry standard. And why not? The avant-garde and utilitarian designs of their line of glasses and mugs will never look out of place, be it in homes or in palaces.
Take the Magic Crystal Champagne Coupe, one of Kosta Boda’s crystal glasses, for instance. At a glance, the design may look simple. However, a closer inspection will reveal a wonderful distribution of weight. The spiral twists along the stem not only provide increased grip, but they will also beautifully refract light, lending a touch of refinement to any event.
The limited-edition UHV Snake Decorative Goblet is another great example of the fine and imaginative products produced by Kosta Boda. Designed by Åsa Jungnelius, the goblet carries a visually imaginative motif depicted in the form of a green snake entwined around its stem.
Kosta Boda manufactures a variety of products that are perfect for any occasion and any room in the house. These include tableware like bowls and platters, decorations like candlesticks and glass art, serving accessories like cake plates and serving trays and drinking accessories like jugs and glass bottles.
