Press release   •   Mar 13, 2012 13:00 UTC

Two Swedish design brands – Weekday and Kosta Boda – in a not so secret affair.

 Kosta Boda is a world leading brand of glass art. Ever since 1742, thought-provoking designs have been created and refined. Today, the company designerns are well-known names, not only in Sweden, but worldwide.

Two of the most innovative Kosta Boda artists – Åsa Jungnelius and Ludvig Löfgren – have now created a series of six products in unique colours, exclusively for Weekday.

Kosta Boda and Weekday are both easily recognized by their contemporary, bold and often challenging designs. As the Kosta Boda glass artists put it in an interview with Weekday Magazine: – We feel very enthusiastic about this project. The clear Weekday concept, in combination with our artistic approach, inspired us.

The series of products include bespoke Kosta Boda-pieces such as Make Up Hot Lips, Still Life Skull Votives and Gabba Gabba Hey. At Weekday a total of six products, all in exclusive colours will be for sale. In all, the glass art will be available in Weekday stores from the first week of May.
