With an education in industrial design as her background, Erika Lagerbielke has been working in design for more than twenty five years. Today she is a professor in glass design at Linnaeus University and runs her own company Erika Lagerbielke & Co AB. Although design for glass manufacturer Orrefors has been Erika Lagerbielke’s main occupation for a long time, she considers all materials and all aspects of design to be future opportunities. Her design philosophy includes both function and poetry. Lagerbielke’s expression is that of warm simplicity and bold elegance.
