Founded by a woman who was ahead of her time…. Glassware at it’s finest – Holmegaard

Today at Panik Design it’s all about glassware. Not just any glassware, the cream of the crop glassware by Holmegaard, a company that have been in glass production since 1825! So, who are Holmegaard? Only a Danish design icon and one of the most recognised names in Scandinavian craftmanship traditions! But we have to give credit where credit is due and that goes to a remarkable woman who was ahead of her time – Countess Henriette Danneskiold-Samsøe. This is the woman responsible for pursuing her late husband’s dream of creating glasswork but also transformed it into an ab artistic aesthetic house that is still on trend today.

It is incredible, the skill and talent that is involved in mouth-blown glass. It’s easy not to give it much thought and just admire the finished product. But seriously, fiery furnaces with apparent molten lava, blown by air from your own mouth, down a pole?! Then there’s something called a Glory Hole…. we won’t even go into what I thought that meant! Anyway, my point is, glass blowing is not for the faint of heart. Holmegaard are proud that each piece of mouth-blown glass is unique and handmade by the glassblower. This is celebrated by the Swan Logo that only mouth-blown items carry.

In stock as we speak, we have some exquisite lanterns by Holmegaard that are part of the Design With Light collection. Created with light, warmth and love these lanterns are perfect indoors or outdoors to create the atmospheric glow that only the marriage between candles and glass can bring! Catching and reflecting light, these elegant functional ornaments encourage that hypnotic dreamlike state we go into when presented with an open flame. Hand-blown and made with a full grain leather strap each lantern is completely original. We LOVE them and I’m absolutely certain you will too! Take a look online and get a feel for this range, not forgetting the incredible process it goes through to bring us such pleasure!
