Born 1919 (died 2010) in Anderstorp, Småland. Early in his career it was clear that Bolin had no desire to take over the family farm. After a series of casual jobs, he decided to start his own metal foundry instead. Thanks to his native stubbornness and feeling for form, Bolin managed to be successful in his field. The Nostalgi and Classic hat and shoe racks make it clear why.
