Stig Lindberg

Sweden (1916-1982)

Stig Lindberg was one of the most prolific designers in Scandinavia. For many swedes, he is representative of the playful design of the 1950´s.

Lindberg studied at the Swedish State School of arts, crafts and design in Stockholm, hoping to become a painter. After graduating in 1937 he accepted an employment as a faience painter at Gustavsberg pottery for Wilhelm Kåge. Kåge became a major influence on the young Lindberg, and in 1949 he was named his successor as art director. Stig Lindberg experimented freely and worked in a range of styles and materials. His eye for sculpture and proportion is evident in his precarious ceramic forms from the 1950´s and 60´s. His unique stoneware from this period is to be found in museum collections world wide. Lindberg kept working with Gustavsberg´s studio until 1980, he then moved to Italy to establish his own studio.
