■Product IntroductionThis is a coffee cup and saucer from the Prisma G series manufactured by Gustavsberg, a leading Swedish ceramic manufacturer. It was designed by Stig Lindberg, a leading Swedish designer of modern design. Lindberg designed the form, while Bibi Breger, a female designer at the same company, designed the surface pattern. Prisma G is a rare item that was only manufactured for three years in the 1950s. It is a piece of pottery designed in the mid-20th century, known as the "midcentury," the heyday of Nordic modernism.

The Prisma series comes in two varieties: a red "R" and a gray "G." Both have the same pattern, but the letters following the series name change depending on the color scheme. This cup is G (gray). The gray is less common in the antique market than the red, and is quite valuable as it is rarely seen even in Sweden, the country of origin.

About Stig Lindberg

Stig Lindberg

Stig Lindberg (1916-1982)

Lindberg was born in Umeå, the capital of northern Sweden, and studied at Konstfack, the art school in Stockholm. He studied painting at the Gustavsberg School of Fine Arts (Frankfurt, Germany) in 1937 and was mentored by his teacher Wilhelm Kåge, and 12 years later in 1949 he succeeded Kåge as the company's art director. From then on, Lindberg produced numerous works as a pioneer of Swedish modernism in the mid-20th century. The Gustavsberg workshop was at its height during Lindberg's time, and even today the works from that time are recognized as works from the golden age known as "mid-century" and are highly valued. Lindberg's workshop was called G-Studion, and many young painters showed off their skills.

About Bibi Breger

Bibi Breger (1927-2014)

Bibi was about 100km from Stockholm. She was born in a rural town called Fagersta. She studied textile design at Konstfack, an art university in Stockholm, and began taking on design jobs while still a student. Her husband Carl-Arne Breger was also a famous product designer, and after graduating, he worked with his husband and became independent as a designer. One day, at her husband's recommendation, she had the opportunity to work as an exclusive designer at the Gustavsberg workshop. Although it was a short period from 1953 to 1957, the designs that Bibi provided during that time will be passed down as masterpieces to future generations. Prisma, Lotus, Salix, etc. are popular pattern designs. After leaving Gustavsberg, she and her husband started Breger Design AB and set up shop in Malmö in the south. Many of her husband Carl's famous product designs were created after that, and it is clear that he was supported by Bibi's abilities.
