■ Product introduction Prisma G series coffee cup and saucer manufactured by Gustavsberg, Sweden's leading ceramic maker. The design was done by Stig Lindberg, a flag-bearer of Swedish modern design. Lindberg designed the form, and Bibi Breger, the company's female designer, was in charge of designing the surface pattern. The Prisma G is a rare model that was produced for only three years in the 1950s. In addition, it is a vessel that was designed in the middle of the 20th century, called "mid-century," which is the heyday of Nordic modernism.

The Prisma series has two types, red "R" and gray "G". Both have the same pattern, but the alphabet that follows the series name changes depending on the color scheme. This cup is G (gray). Gray is less distributed in the antique market than red, and it is a very valuable item that is rarely seen even in Sweden.

In 1937, he joined Gustavsberg and studied under his teacher, Wilhelm Koge, and 12 years later, in 1949, he succeeded Koge as the company's art director. Since then, Lindberg has produced numerous works as a flag bearer of Swedish modernism in the middle of the 20th century.

About Bibi Breger

Bibi Breger (1927-2014)

Bibi was about 100 kilometers away from Stockholm I was born in a rural town called Fagersta. Studied textile design at Konstfack, an art university in the capital Stockholm, and began to undertake design work while still in school. her husband's Carl-ArneBreger is also a well-known product designer, and after graduating he worked with his husband to become an independent designer. One day, at the recommendation of my husband, I had the opportunity to work as an exclusive designer at the Gustavsberg workshop. It was a short period from 1953 to 1957, but the design provided by Vivi during that time will be handed down to future generations as a masterpiece. Prisma, Lotus, Salix, etc. have become popular pattern designs. After leaving Gustavsberg, she and her husband founded BregerDesignAB, based in southern Malmö. Many of her husband Karl's famous product designs were created after that, and I feel that she was supported by Vivi's competence.
