Gunnar Nylund is best known for his long and notable career designing ceramics for Rörstrand, where his innovative designs earned the company widespread acclaim during the mid-20th century.

During the years 1953-1956, he expanded his creative repertoire by delving into the world of glass design for Swedish company Strömbergshyttan. His creations from this period consist of soft, organic forms with a clean & elegant aesthetic.

Among Nylund's work for Strömbergshyttan, his designs crafted using the Venetian 'Sommerso' technique are most desired by collectors. These exquisite pieces, which feature strikingly elongated proportions, showcase a captivating interplay of colours with their hued inner layer encased within a crystal-clear glass cocoon.

This slim purple vase is one of the tallest of Nylund's 'Sommerso' designs and perfectly demonstrates the grace & Modernity of his artistic vision.
