Designed by Kerstin H. Holmquist

Kerstin Hörlin-Holmquist (1925-1997) was a Swedish modernist architect and designer. She is remembered today, for her ability to create designs for the modern home in the 1950's without worrying about short lived trends and what other people thought - to stay true to her own unique and humanistic design vision.   

She often worked with her husband Erik Holmquist, and together they modelled and created the pieces together. A key aspect for the couple was always to test their designs in their own home before completing a project.    

"I think both furniture and textiles, wherever they end up, must be kind, gentle and courteous, but without losing their character. They should have human qualities, not be pompous and only stand alone, but be able to adapt to the environment they end up in..."

Holmquist worked and studied in England from 1946-1947 immediately after the war where she also studied art history and became fascinated with the classic English upholstered furniture and style. Something that without a doubt inspired her own creations later in life while she still developed her own expression. She returned to Sweden where she attended and graduated from Konstfack in the years 1948-1952.

Her timeless and iconic Paradiset Collection was created during her employment with Nordiska Kompaniet in 1956-1957 and holds a soft simplicity and a uniqueness in their appearance - light, clean lines and yet gracious with an air of romance. Today, her designs are highly treasured collectibles and rarely to be found on auctions.
