As you approach Skruf Glassworks, you’re welcomed by an inconspicuous blowing room in a building from the 1940s, and it’s hard to believe what’s concealed inside. Because this is the home of modern design classics that regularly become the darlings of interior design bloggers – as you enter the doors you’re surrounded by the Dagg vase for Svenskt Tenn, and Pallo, Column and Tokyo, all standing in neat wooden boxes ready for grinding. Like many other glassworks, Skruf has a chequered history when it comes to ownership. But the love of glass has led to many of them being reborn, phoenix-like, from the ashes of their former glory. Today, Skruf is run by the Elm family.
Inside the glassworks is a red wooden building that held the grinding workshop and was constructed in the same year as the first blowing room – 1897. This unique building now contains a museum with objects produced by Skruf over the years.
