Stig Lindberg mugs

By Skandium


  • Description

    We are honored to be the first company who have been granted the rights to use Swedish artist, Stig Lindberg's iconic artwork for a product it was not originally intended for.

    For a series of mugs, we have chosen Lindberg's intricate illustrations from the children's book Daniel Doppsko (Daniel Tip Your Toe). In the story the lead character discovers a world under water, intriguing and full of surprises. We have given the black and white illustrations a dash of colour and placed them on a specially designed mug which compliments the illustrations perfectly.

    Stig Lindberg was one of Sweden's most versatile and charismatic artists. There was a Stig Lindberg item in many households through many decades during his long time of productivity. Lindberg's ceramics are now in high demand on the collectors market and loved worldwide.

    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.
