Asa's MakeUp series is all about how we create our identity through the phenomenon of shopping. Here she lovingly mimics a famous fashion pattern, which she uses as a framework for a new Kosta Boda design.


Designed by Asa Jungelius: Asa Jungelius was born in Stockholm and has been retained by Kosta Boda as a designer since 2007. She is fascinated by the way the value of an object is created and what it conveys about us and our world. She is continually challenging the establishment by questioning the structural norms of society. The resulting creations are razor sharp comments. Her art spans a wide spectrum, covering issues such as aesthetic hierarchies, fashion, shopping, decadence and construction of gender. References that are clearly expressed in the collections “Jackie” and “MakeUp”.

Over the centuries, the artists and craftsmen of Kosta Boda and Orrefors have not only embodied the distinctive folkways of Scandinavian design, but helped define those traditions. When you buy and give Kosta Boda or Orrefors, you're buying and giving history - a lineage of great design and craftsmanship that has endured for more than 260 years.When the USA was established our company was nearly 50 years old. The original Kosta glassworks was born in 1742 as a partnership, the name an acronym from the partners' surnames: Anders KOskull and Georg Boglislaus STAël von Holstein. As Kosta grew and prospered, we helped grow an entire industry in Småland, Sweden's "Kingdom of Glass." In the 20th century, Kosta and neighboring glasshouses Åfors and Boda, were merged under a common owner. In 1976, we were renamed Kosta Boda.In 1726 Lars Johan Silversparre built a furnace at "the beautiful river that flows into Lake Orrenas". It was given the name Orrefors which means the "Orre waterfall". The glassworks was built in 1898 to utilize spilled timber. Then in 1916 artists Simon Gate and Edward Hald laid the foundation for a vital tradition at Orrefors, in the form of close cooperation between skilled glassblowers and gifted designers. The ambition for all glass from Kosta Boda and Orrefors is to achieve the highest possible quality and equisite design.
