Erik Höglund was a Swedish artist and designer known for his innovative glass and metalwork designs. Born in 1932, Höglund initially trained as a painter before turning his attention to glass and metalworking in the 1950s. He quickly established himself as a leading figure in the Scandinavian design scene, creating a wide range of distinctive and original designs that combined traditional techniques with modernist aesthetics. Höglund’s work often incorporated natural forms and textures, reflecting his deep appreciation of the natural world. Today, his work can be found in museums and galleries around the world, and his influence can be seen in the work of many contemporary artists and designers.
