Björn Dahlström (born in Stockholm in 1957) started out as a graphic designer and currently makes both two and three dimensional work as an industrial designer. His breakthrough came with the BD1 lounge chair for CBI Design Sweden, which was named Furniture of the Year in 1995. He has designed rugs, bicycles, toys, furniture and household products for companies including Cbi, Atlas Copco, Marimekko, Magis and Kasthall.

Dahlström’s work is represented at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, Nationalmuseum in Stockholm and the Centre National des Arts Plastiques in Paris, among other museums. His numerous distinctions include the 2001 Torsten and Wanja Söderberg Prize – one of the most prestigious design awards in the Nordic region.

For Orrefors, Björn Dahlström has designed Informal, which was nominated in 2021 for the Swedish Design Prize in the category of “Identity Product Design” and earned second place.

Orrefors has been established in Swedish design tradition since 1898, characterized by timeless aesthetics, functionality, craftsmanship and sustainable quality. Orrefors offers premium products designed by well-known designers for an audience interested in Scandinavian design. The glass and shape are always in focus, combined with elegance, simplicity and confidence.

First, they produced glass jars for preserved foods in nineteenth-century Orrefors. As social movements and the notion of “more beautiful everyday goods” took hold around the turn of the last century, artists Edward Hald and Simon Gate were invited to the glassworks. They promptly began making new objects with color and engraving. The results became popular worldwide through exhibitions, and before long, glass from the forests of Småland was incomparable. 

The history of Orrefors is the story of how the simplest ingredients – lime, sand and soda – can become magnificent glass objects. The artists and designers made Orrefors a global leader in glass.
