BSWEDEN design decorates Harrods
Herråkra! To get there the English gentlemen were
forced to find their way on winding gravel roads just like all the other
To those who have seen the chandelier´s design it does not sound strange at all, but rather understandable. We are not allowed to reveal what the chandelier will look like. The chandelier has just been delivered and will be inaugurated in the beginning of October. It is not until then that the creation which has been manufactured far away from glamorous London will be shown.
the Studioglas Strömberg glassworks, a couple of kilometres south
of Herråkra, master craftsman Håkan Gunnarsson was busy bringing
the details of the chandelier into shape in front of the roaring glass
have been underway for almost a year now.
During the past couple of days the chandelier has been put up in London. Before it was sent off from Sweden it had been assembled on a former hayloft. All 822 pieces were marked before the chandelier was taken apart, carefully packed in boxes, sent off. Up with the 822 pieces again, 600 kg and six metres in length. The hall will be closed off for a short time while even the three smaller chandeliers will be put up before the doors will be opened for a festive opening ceremony. As a sparkling bouquet it will welcome the visitors in "The White Hall" the hall where 115000 visitors enjoy one of the worlds largest offer of exclusive cosmetics each day.
This is a very prestigious order and for us a way to show that we can
handle a project of this size, says Åke Carlson, General Manager
BSWEDEN believes that the demand in their lamps will increase, especially in Europe but even in the Gulf region, due to this special order from Harrods.
Despite all secrecy, in the factory showroom in Herråkra the original model gets attention. Designed by Peter Nilsson and considerably small compared to the one at Harrods it allows a tickling insight into what can be expected at this department store with its fine old traditions.
