On Friday 15 May, The King opened the exhibition "... by Bernadotte – Design and Watercolours by Sigvard and Michael Bernadotte", this year's exhibition at Solliden Palace.
Works by Sigvard Bernadotte and his son Michael are on display in the pavilion at Solliden Palace.
Sigvard Bernadotte was a pioneer of Swedish industrial design and one of Sweden's leading designers. The companies Bernadotte & Bjørn, which he led together with Danish architect Acton Bjørn, and Bernadotte Design produced well-known products such as the Röda Clara tin opener and the Margrethe bowl.
Michael Bernadotte is a successful architect in Stuttgart. The exhibition showcases his watercolours, a way in which he studies colour and form in his work as an architect.
Each year, two exhibitions are shown in parallel. One is a seasonal exhibition on a royal theme, and the other is a permanent exhibition about the palace.
The exhibitions and the palace grounds are open daily between 11:00 and 18:00, from 16 May to 15 September.
