Bengt & Lotta

Bengt & Lotta is a distinctly Swedish home and giftware brand with designs that have roots in traditional Scandinavian folk art. The brand began not long after husband and wife team, Bengt Lindberg and Lotta Glave met at the University College of Arts, Crafts and Design in Stockholm. Bengt & Lotta products are sold all over the world and some of their creations can be found in the Nordiska Muséet in Stockholm, Kulturen in Lund and at Växjö Glass Museum. Bengt was born in Värnamo, in Sweden and is inspired by his love of old things, especially the slightly naive, and clumsy folk art stuff. Lotta, who stems from Malmö believes a lot of her inspiration comes from her Austrian grandmother who worked as an illustrator and bookbinder.
