Erika Lagerbielke’s Merlot collection launched in 1995. The goal of Merlot was to offer glasses that elevate the taste experience without specifically being intended for wine connoisseurs. The collection received an Excellent Swedish Design award the very first year. Based on Orrefors’ century of history, Merlot represents classic, finely crafted glass with understated Scandinavian design in the spirit of less is more. This invisible quality may very well mean that your Merlot glasses never need to be recycled – simply use and take pleasure in them over and over, in your own cycle of sustainability.
