    Illustrations by Stig Lindberg (1916-1982) Umeå, northern Sweden

    Lindberg gave the Swedish modern movement with its slogan 'better everyday products for everyday living' a very individual touch and his handwriting immediately recognisable. Lindberg was Sweden's most loved 20th century illustrator, charming the public with his witty designs through a wide variety of works including public artworks, textiles, industrial product designs and book illustrations.

    The Lindberg family has granted Skandium the use of his illustrations from the children's book 'Daniel Doppsko' (Daniel Tip Your Toe), written by Lennart Hellsing in 1959, for our own series of products. here used for a range of porcelain bowls of own design.

    It is our pleasure to let a new generation enjoy the illustrations Stig Lindberg created over fifty years ago.

    Stig Lindberg

    Stig Lindberg (1916-1982) was a Swedish ceramic designer, glass designer, textile designer, industrial designer, painter, and illustrator. One of Sweden's most important postwar designers, Lindberg created whimsical studio ceramics and graceful tableware lines during a long career with the Gustavsberg pottery factory. Stig Lindberg studied painting at the University College of Arts, Crafts and Design. In 1937, he went to work at Gustavsberg under Wilhelm Kåge. In 1949, he was named Kåge's successor as art director. From this period until he left Gustavsberg in 1980, he designed individual ceramic items, as well as factory produced ranges and lines of dinnerware. He achieved fame for his eccentric forms and whimsical decoration. In 1982, he died due to a myocardial infarction.
