Holmquist Eve Chair by Gubi
Following the successful launch of Greta M. Grossman iconic designs at last years Salone del Mobile, Gubi is proud to have acquired the rights to yet another amazing Swedish female modernist designer. In 2014, Gubi will introduce the Paradiset Collection, designed by Kerstin Hörlin-Holmquist in 1956. This timeless and iconic collection was created during Holmquist's employment with NK - Nordiska Kompaniet in the 1950's and holds a soft simplicity. All designs are unique in their appearance - light, clean lines and gracious with an air of romance.
She named her pieces inspired by "Paradiset" (Swedish name for Eden or Paradise). The first piece was the feminine lounge chair - Eva Chair and later followed its masculine counterpart, the Adam Chair. To compliment the two lounge chairs she also created a sofa - the Paradiset sofa.
All three original designs will be re-introduced by Gubi in the Spring of 2014 and will first be presented to the press and market at IMM Cologne, at Maison & Object Paris and also at Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair January-February 2014. The new designs will be available on gubi.com and at selected retailers in Autumn of 2014. A limited selection is products will be available for photo shoots on request.
