Gunnar Nylund (1904-97)was Danish-born but worked across both Denmark and Sweden during his career. His work spans the period from the 1920s to the 1970s making him one of the great leaders in Scandinavian design.  He started off at Bing and Grondhal in the 1920s before setting up a studio with Natalie Krebs in 1929.  This was later to be called the Saxbo studio after 1930. He left for Rörstrand in 1932.  His work for Rõrstrand as their artistic director from 1930 to the 1950s helped establish them as a leader in Swedish ceramics along with Gustavsberg.  He also designed a number of glass designs for Strömbergshyttan, Sweden in the 1950s. His work is the epitome of the mid-century Scandinavian style.
