Stig Lindberg (1916-1982)
Born in Umeå, the central city of northern Sweden. Hajime Stockholm Art University Konstfack ( Konstfack) to learn painting. In 1937, he joined the Gustavsberg company, where he gradually distinguished himself under the tutelage of his teacher, Wilhelm Koge. Twelve years later, in 1949, he succeeded Koge as an art director in charge of the design of the company.
Since then, Lindberg has released numerous works as a standard-bearer of Swedish modernism in the middle of the 20th century. The Gustavsberg workshop reached its peak in the era when Lindberg was active, and the works of that time are recognized as the work of the golden age called "mid-century" and have high value. Lindberg's workshop is called G-Studion (G Studio), and young designers are showing great skill, producing prominent artists such as Lisa Larson.
