【Description of item】
Gustavsberg has created famous tableware with two elements: patterns and color schemes. However, Alena is the simplest of Stig Lindberg's designs, finished with only the vividness of the color scheme. The arena means an amphitheater, and the roundness of the cup and saucer is reproducible, and the hand-painted orange color scheme shines vividly on the milky white background.

There is a series named after the town of Tuscany in Italy called Siena, which was designed around the same time. Lindberg moved to Italy in his later years, but the design tells how his feelings were directed to Italy.

[About Stig Lindberg]

Stig Lindberg (1916-1982)

Lindberg was born in Umeå, a central city in northern Sweden, and studied painting at the Konstfack art school in Stockholm. 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. The Gustavsberg workshop in the era when Lindberg was active has reached its heyday, and even now the works of that time are recognized as works of the golden age called "mid-century" and have high value. Lindberg's studio was called G-Studion, and young painters showed their skills. Lindberg retired in 1980 and opened a workshop in Italy where he retired, but died there two years later.
