Danish classics

ミキシング・ボール

6 November 1997 Denmark
Danish Design ( set of 4 )
design: M. Stürup / Lithography
The Margrethe-bowl by Bernadotte and Björn, 1957

The last one is a mixing bowl. Details are all in this Danish web site, Art on Stamps.  I did not know that the designer of these famous mixing bowl, Sigvard Oscar Frederik Bernadotte, was Swedish and son of King Gustav VI.  Although the bowl looks very democratic, it is named after HM Queen Margrethe Ⅱ of Denmark – ah, they were friends.

デンマーク・デザイン・クラシックの最後の1枚です。この50年代の有名なミキシング・ボールは当時のデンマーク女王の名前が付いていて、なぜ?と思ったら、デザイナーがスウェーデンの王子だったようです。幼なじみだったのかも。民主的なデザインに見えるのにね。
