Paradiso– A series by Gunnel Sahlin
”Paradiso is the dream of delicious fruit that lasts a long, long time. A fruit that places you in an imaginary world and cheers up your home. Combine it with items you already have and suddenly, the room comes to life!” – Gunnel Sahlin
Gunnel Sahlin, is currently active as both an artist and a designer. Today, she is one of the glass artists who gave Sweden its name as one of the world’s most prominent producers of glass. With her liberated view of glass design and her playful color and joy of form, she during the 1990s contributed to giving the Kosta Boda brand a whole new meaning. Among her sales successes are the series “Frutteria”.
“The time at Kosta Boda was and is fantastic. Here there is an opportunity and space to try out new things, which creates dynamic results. When you’re working with glass, everything happens during the actual process of making. In my creation, I seek an untamable, primal power. It is present in nature and it is present in glass and that is what I search for.”
