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. Holmquist worked and studied in England from 1946-47 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 Konstfack from 1948-52.
