Salix coffee cup and saucer designed in 1954 by Stig Lindberg, a master of modern design representing Sweden. Salix is ​​a willow (willow), and willow leaves are evenly arranged throughout. Each leaf has a slightly different look. The decoration of the leaves is done by a method called "transcription," in which a transparent sticker with a pattern printed on it is crimped, a transparent glaze is applied over it, and it is fired again in a kiln to fix it. Since crimping is a manual work, each cup has a slightly different expression.

Salix has been reprinted and comes in large and small tea cup and coffee cup sizes. However, the form is trapezoidal, and the vintage round form has not been reproduced. This coffee cup is somewhat smaller than an espresso cup, but the form design is more sophisticated than the current product. Designer Bibi Breger, who invented the willow leaf pattern design, is also in charge of the decoration of Gustavsberg's Prisma, and is one of the contributors behind the mid-century masterpieces. It is a masterpiece of the middle of the 20th century (mid-century), which is said to be the golden age of Nordic modernity.

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.

Bibi Breger

Bibi Breger (1927-2014)

Bibi Breger (1927-2014)

Born in Fagersta, a town about 100 kilometers north of Stockholm, the capital of Sweden. While studying textile design at Konstfack Art University , a famous art university in the country , he began to undertake design work while still in school. Her husband Karl-Arne Breger is also known as a famous product designer.

Gustavsberg's tenure at Bibi was short, from 1953 to 1957, but during that time he devised pattern designs that remain today, such as Prisma, Lotus, and Salix. After leaving Gustavsberg, she and her husband founded Breger Design AB, which is based in Malmö, southern Sweden. Many of her husband Karl's famous product designs were created after starting the business, and it makes me feel that there was Vivi's competence in the background.
