Margrethe collection by Rosti
A classic celebrates its 60th name day: The Margrethe mixing bowl by Rosti. The design classic owes its worldwide popularity primarily to the Danish designer duo Sigvard Bernadotte and Acton Bjørn, who developed the mixing bowl in the 1950s.
In 1954, the mixing bowl was named after the Danish Queen Margrethe, the niece of Sigvard Bernadotte, and was launched on the international market with this sonorous name in three different sizes. Today the popular and stable mixing bowl is available in many different colours and sizes.
The year 1947 is mentioned as the date of the first initiatives to develop a functional mixing bowl. Stability, stackability, secure holding, easy emptying and cleaning were the main features that this mixing bowl was to offer. In 1949 the designer duo Acton Bjørn and Sigvard Bernadotte were commissioned to create the design. The first production of mixing bowls started in 1950. Since Sigvard Bernadotte was the uncle of Princess Margrethe (later Queen of Denmark), he suggested that the bowls be named after his niece. However, the Danish royal house did not agree until 1954, after which mass production of the bowl in three different sizes began. In 1966, twelve years later, the mixing bowls were improved with a rubber ring on the base and the range was extended by two more sizes.
In order to celebrate the 60th name day in a fitting manner, there are special anniversary sets which offer further practical advantages.
