The world-leading crystal brand Kosta Boda and Elvis Presley Enterprises come together for a brand-new collaboration of three astonishing limited-edition Elvis-inspired guitars. Created by the celebrated glass artist Kjell Engman, the collection is a tribute to Presley’s cultural legacy. To shop the collection, visit www.kostaboda.us.
The collaboration draws on touchpoints of both rock ‘n’ roll and glass: harmony, vibrancy, motion, and emotion, and serves as a tribute to those shared qualities.
Each guitar is inspired by an Elvis Presley milestone – the 65th anniversary of Elvis purchasing Graceland, the 50th anniversary of the song Burning Love, and the 60th anniversary of Follow That Dream. The objects are handmade at Kosta Glassworks in Sweden with beautiful hand-painted details that make each guitar unique.
“This is one of the greatest collaborations Kosta Boda has carried out in the U.S. since the beginning. We are very excited to work with the Elvis Presley Enterprises, honor his legacy and share the Swedish heritage with our American audience. We unite two countries in two very different cultural and historical art forms,” says Emon Maasho, CEO and President at Kosta Boda North America.
