BERNADOTTE & BJØRN INDUSTRIDESIGN A/S
Bernadotte & Bjørn Industridesign A/S was the first studio for industrial design, not just in Denmark, but throughout Scandinavia. The Danish designer and architect Acton Bjørn, together with Swedish Count Sigvard Bernadotte, brother of the Danish Queen Ingrid, set new standards for industrial design in the 1950s and onwards. They had a significant influence on the design world when it came to the use of materials such as plastic and metal. The studio designed radios and furniture and is best known for Rosti’s Margrethe bowl, the stackable mixing bowl that in 1954 was named after Bernadotte’s niece, the current Danish Queen Margrethe II.
