Kosta Boda Art Gallery
Art gallery in the heart of the Kingdom of Glass
Kosta Boda Art Gallery is an art gallery a stone's throw from the glass furnaces at Kosta Glasbruk. The art gallery represents our contemporary art glass with new exhibitions from our famous artists and designers.
Never before has so much glass art been available in one place. Let yourself be seduced by the different artists' different expressions and ways of relating to the glass. Maybe you'll find a piece of art that speaks directly to you.
Kosta Boda Art Gallery consists of an art gallery, designed by Bruno Mathsson in the early 50s. Bruno Mathssonhallen has a glass mosaic floor, made in Kosta, and floor-to-ceiling windows. At the far end hides a wall painting by Vicke Lindstrand. The old Brukskontoret was converted into a gallery in 2014. In the Glass Bar, designed by Lena Bergström, you can enjoy a cup of coffee or a cold drink in peace and quiet.
One of the many unique items that can only be bought in Kosta is the Kosta pot. The pot is made of 100% recycled glass from Kosta Glasbruk and has an inlaid stamp.
Kosta Boda has a long tradition of producing world-class art glass and the reputation of Kosta Boda as creative, artistic and challenging has spread far beyond Sweden's borders. Our artists and designers are known for their artistry, their artistry and their ability to surprise and continue to develop unique techniques in glass design. At Kosta Boda Art Gallery you can buy world-class art glass.
With Kosta Boda art glass, we reach out into the world, while bringing the world home to Kosta. With the endless possibilities of glass in focus, our artists create art based on creativity, knowledge and courage, combined with the love of glass as a material.

In their large exhibition space, a new temporary exhibition is exhibited every year with exciting contemporary artists who show new art in collaboration with Kosta Boda. On October 21, the autumn's new exhibition will be opened, where two of our leading figures; Åsa Jungnelius and Bertil Vallien loosened up traditions and provided us with new ways of looking at glass.
Åsa Jungnelius Shadow of Venus
Åsa Jungnelius is interested in the monumental expressions and the socially and structurally constructed spaces where they take place. Through objects and materials as value-bearing representations for identity and projection surface for the corporeal, she investigates the relationship between matter and man and the sliding scale of positioning that is constantly renegotiated and recreated throughout history. Now Åsa shows new sculptures in her first solo exhibition in Kosta Boda Art Gallery.
Bertil Vallien STARMAN; 60 years of exploring glass
Together with Kosta Boda, Bertil Vallien has explored and developed the art of glass into something completely his own, beyond old truths and techniques. Time and again, his visionary journey into the melting point of glass has presented co-workers and assistants with tough challenges. He early left the elegantly cut crystal glass behind for a rawer reality with his sand castings.
