The high-tech, luminous sound reflector is a beautiful decorative feature that sits perfectly against the architectural style of the rest of the opera building. This huge chandelier weighs in total over eight tons, has a diameter of seven meters and hangs 16 meters above the parquet.
Hadeland Glassverk designed the chandelier in collaboration with Snøhetta architects.
For more than 60 years, the glassworks produced objects for the Norwegian American Line. Now the headquarters re-opens on March 15th as a hotel (Now the headquarters has re-opened as a hotel), so (and) it is an honour to blow new life for the American Line! Hadeland Glassverk is responsible for the production of various lights and champagne flutes. All the products are hand-blown at Hadeland Glassverk by our skilled craftsmen.

In the basement of the production building at Hadeland Glassverk, we discovered a product catalogue with lights from the early 1900s. In the winter of 2018/2019 we selected several stylish designs, which are now being hand blown again by our skilled craftsmen. The lights can be found in stores from May.
Hadeland Glassverk was established in 1762 and is Norway’s longest existing industry company. Previously both Høvik Lys and Høvik Verk were a part of Hadeland Glassverk, and in the 1950’s and 60’s Hadeland Glassverk was one of Norway’s largest lighting suppliers. In recent years lighting has not been the main focus area for Hadeland Glassverk, but after increased interest are our designers, glassblowers and glass cutters now in full production!
The popular Glass Sphere lighting series is designed by Maud Gj. Bugge and is hand-blown and cut by our talented craftsmen and women at Hadeland Glassverk using 250 year old techniques.
Glass art installations
Hadeland Glassverk has provided artworks in glass for both private and public buildings including Villa Stenersen, Statkraft, Argent restaurant, Bølgen & Moi, Ringerike hospital and various churches. Glass and porcelain are transparent materials that work wonderfully with light either as a lamp, a chandelier or integrated as other décor elements. We work with a varied colour spectrum to suit both buildings and interiors.
