Orrefors Fuga Dessert Set

Set of 6 aqua blue Fuga dessert bowls for Orrefors Sweden by Sven Palmqvist. Palmqvist developed the Fuga technique to provide Orrefors with a means to mass-produce cheap domestic glasswares. The technique is characterized by its simplicity and its ingenuity and works as follows: molten glass is poured into a spinning mould that, through its centrifugal spinning force (hence the name “Fuga”), presses the glass outward and upward. The internal shape of the piece being produced is determined by an internal plunger. Because of the process bowl differ slightly in size. Diameter approx 110mm height 38mm. Perfect condition.
