Dreamy set of armchairs designed by Swede Kerstin Hörlin-Holmquist. A variation on the sober Scandinavian designs of the 1950s and 60s, the two features some delicate wave-like forms differing it from its siblings of the era like pieces by Bruno Mathsson, Yngve Ekström and Carl Malmsten. Manufactured by Nordiska Kompaniet, for whom she also created her popular, nonetheless timeless and iconic Paradies collection. Hörlin-Holmquist is widely known for her unique humanistic take on design,favoring bright, clear and graceful lines with a pinch of romance.
