About Difference »

Difference, a unique suite of wine glasses explicitly designed to enhance flavor and bouquet, brings a new dimension to the enjoyment of fine wine. Form and function have been carefully tested: Difference is the creation of Erika Lagerbielke, one of Sweden’s foremost stemware designers, who worked on the new glasses in close cooperation with wine connoisseur Bengt-Göran Kronstam.

Unlike other wine glasses, Difference is designed to reflect the wine’s maturity rather than grape variety or region, which often demand many different types of glass. In the Difference concept, all that is needed are two glasses for red wines (young and mature), two glasses for white wines (dry/crisp and fruity), one glass for champagne (tall and narrow to conserve the bubbles, yet gently curved to capture the bouquet), and a small glass for sweet dessert wines.

All Difference glasses have their own distinctive design idiom – their large bowls are strikingly curved, their stems slender and tall, bringing elegance and beauty to the glass. The broad foot, meanwhile, adds visual and physical stability. “I probably worked on Difference more than on any other design, both aesthetically and functionally,” says Erika Lagerbielke, who last year celebrated her twentieth anniversary as an Orrefors designer.
