Welcome to our collection of Swedish glassware from Kosta Boda. At iapetus we've a bit of a thing about glass, and we've been a proud official Kosta Boda UK stockist for the past 10 years!
Kosta Boda is one of the world’s leading glass workshops. Their glass is noted for its’ artistry, colour and unique design. At their glassworks in Kosta, their skilled glassworkers are joined by several of Sweden’s most prestigious designers in developing the design, craftsmanship and new techniques. A smaller part of our production has been produced at other renowned glassworks, mainly in Europe, since 2004.
Kosta Boda is Scandinavia's largest glassworks group. The heart of the business is the Kingdom of Crystal in the province of Småland, which attracts a million visitors annually. Kosta is Sweden's oldest glassworks. Founded in 1742, Kosta is often referred to as the mother of the Kingdom of Crystal, since many of the neighbouring glassworks were founded by former Kosta masters.
At iapetus we spend a lot of time carefully sourcing and picking the pieces we offer. Everything you see has been crafted to a high standard, ethically sourced, be that made in the UK or fairly traded from our International artisans, and lastly is quirky and unusual - something which should surprise, delight and inspire you to gift buying greatness!
