About The Designer
Gustavsberg has manufactured porcelain since 1825. Although, the Gustavsberg history originates from the 1600s, when Gustav Gabrielsson Oxenstierna and his wife, Maria de la Gardie, founded a brickyard in Farsta bay. In memory of Oxenstierna, Farsta bay later came to change its name to Gustavsberg. It was not until 1825 that Gustavsberg became known for their manufacturing of porcelain.
Gustavsberg is now a leading brand in the porcelain industry. Their mission is to offer innovative solutions that make everyday life easier and more relaxing. Their commitment to high quality production and Nordic design still remains central to the company’s nearly 200 years of design history.
