Design Kerstin H. Holmquist, 1956

Designed by Kerstin H. Holmquist in 1958 for Nordiska Kompaniet, NK, the Paradiset Sofa boosts an elegant and organic shape - a strong feature of Swedish modern design. While the soft line of the back, which smoothly run over into the armrests, gives a classic appeal, the tapered and curved legs bring a whimsical twist to the 2,5- seater sofa design.

The Paradiset Sofa is part of the Paradiset Collection, where all names are inspired by “Paradiset” – the Swedish name for Eden or Paradise.

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.
