OUR STORY

The Brand  VAS VITREUM stands for quality craftsmanship and brings together all the  elements of excellence of the Swedish luxury crystal  industry. Today, the company is run  by the 4th  and the 5th generation of Swedish masters, who  combine shape and know-how to create beautiful,  high quality art. All pieces are genuinely made by hand with the absolute best quality of raw materials.

 

The first four generations of the family worked with  great success for the world famous glass factories  Orrefors, Kosta Boda and Sandvik. The great  grandfather Gustav  Augustsson, was one of only five  masters who  made the award winning objects for the  Paris Exhibition in 1925 and for that was rewarded  with a gold medal.

 

In 1985, the master engraver Lars Börnesson,  the 4th generation of glass craftsmen decided to  found his own company. The name Vas Vitreum is  Latin and means: "object made of glass".  The company has since then had many major  assignments, including the large ten-year mission  engraving in the Linköping Cathedral. The engraving  consists of 180 windows with the Virgin Mary in a  floral dress. About ninety species from the Nordic  flora can be seen in the windows.

 

The 5th generation Mikael Kenlind joined the  company in year 2002. Today he is in charge of the  design and product development, renowned for his  knowledge, creative approach and passion for  the material. Mikael was only 8 years old when his  grandfather made him a small glass working bench.  Since then, his fascination for the hot molten crystal  has led him to explore and learn the craft.
