Designer: Folke Arström
Folke Arström (1907-1997) was a Swedish artist and an early modernist industrial designer who specialized in metal flatware and kitchenware. He opened his own studio in 1934 and is known for some of his beautiful Art Deco pieces, including a chrome and bakelite cocktail shaker he created while he worked for Guldsmedsaktiebolaget (GAB) in Stockholm from 1936 to 1949. He also designed for Edlund's Silver Factory Ltd. (BHE) in Stockholm during that time. In 1940 he took a position as creative manager with A. B. Gense, where he worked for the next 20 years. Some of Arström's best known designs are Focus De Luxe, Facette and Attache. Gense still produces these lines today.View other products by Folke Arström
