The Orrefors Eko collection
Seas of new colors are available in the Eko series — Olympian Blue, Bright Chartreuse (lime), Rhapsody (lilac) and Honey Gold (amber). A whimsical interpretation of an echo wave has been brought to life in crystal with this design, as a mirror of reflective waves of glass travel up the sides of the objects forming an echo wave of perfect rhythm and harmony. Bowls for serving or a large hurricane lamp and a votive light or small bowl for dips make up the collection.
