Small chandelier with patinated metal frame, composed of 12 light arms and adorned with clear glass pendants. Manufactured by Boda Nova Glassworks for the glass and Stromberg Ironworks for the metal. Erik Höglund was a Swedish artist known for his experimental work with amber glass. His glass bottles, chandeliers, and candelabras are recognisable by their delicate, geometric designs. For example, in this chandelier dating from 1970, the artist balanced cup-like glass fixtures on top of a spherical, metal structure. Born in 1932 in Karlskrona, Sweden, he studied sculpture at the University of Arts, Crafts, and Design in Stockholm. At age 25, Höglund became the youngest artist to ever receive the Lunning Prize, awarded annually to up-and-coming Scandinavian designers. He worked as a designer for Boda Glassworks from 1953–1973, quickly becoming celebrated for his strong use of color and embossed animal designs. Höglund died in 1988 in Sweden. Today, his work is held in the collections of the Blekinge museum in Karlskrona, the Nationalmuseum in Stockholm, and the Cooper-Hewitt Design Museum in New York, among others.

Exécuté par la Manufacture Boda Nova Glassworks pour le verre et Stromberg Ironworks pour le métal. Erik Höglund était un artiste suédois connu pour son travail expérimental avec le verre ambré. Ses bouteilles en verre, ses lustres et ses candélabres sont reconnaissables à leurs motifs géométriques délicats. Par exemple, dans ce lustre datant de 1970, l'artiste a placé des objets en verre en forme de coupe sur une structure métallique sphérique. Né en 1932 à Karlskrona, en Suède, il a étudié la sculpture à l'université des arts, de l'artisanat et du design de Stockholm. À l'âge de 25 ans, Höglund est devenu le plus jeune artiste à recevoir le prix Lunning, décerné chaque année à des designers scandinaves prometteurs. Il a travaillé comme designer pour Boda Glassworks de 1953 à 1973, devenant rapidement célèbre pour sa forte utilisation de la couleur et ses motifs d'animaux en relief. Höglund est décédé en 1988 en Suède. Aujourd'hui, ses œuvres font partie des collections du musée Blekinge de Karlskrona, du Nationalmuseum de Stockholm et du Cooper-Hewitt Design Museum de New York, entre autres.
