In 1949, Paul Kedelv joined Flygsfors and during his time there he created the most popular and recognizable ranges of art glass ever manufactured at the company. In 1952, he designed the Coquille (which means shell in Swedish) range of art glass. This range or art glass was distinguished by its organic forms with cased layers of transparent and opaque colored glass, and was inspired by sea shells. The Coquille range became Flygsfors’ most popular and world renowned line of glass and was produced into the early 1960s.
