A vintage tea cup from the famous Swedish kiln Gustavsberg. Gustavsberg has produced famous tableware with two elements: pattern and color scheme. This product Arena was created by Stig Lindberg, one of the company's representative designers, and is finished with a simple and vivid color scheme.

Arena means "Amphitheatre" in Rome, and the roundness of the plate has the reproducibility of an arena.

Lindberg tableware designed around the same time includes a series named after a town in Tuscany, Italy called Siena. Stig Lindberg moved to Italy in his later years, but the design tells how his feelings were for Italy.

Although it is an old series manufactured from 1973 to 1978, it is a highly functional item that has excellent heat resistance and is compatible with dishwashers.

Stig Lindberg

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.
