This classic piece celebrates its 60th name’s day: The Margrethe mixing bowl from Rosti Mepal. The design classic became famous all over the world because of the Danish design duo Sigvard Bernadotte and Acton Bjørn, who developed the mixing bowl in the 50s.
1954 was when the mixing bowl was named after the Danish queen Margrethe, the niece of Sigvard Bernadotte, and presented in three different sizes on the international market with this sound-full name. The popular and resistant mixing bowl is available in different colours and sizes today.
The year 1947 is the time when the first initiatives to develop some functional mixing bowls came. Stability, stackability, safe hold, simple emptying as well as cleaning were thereby the main qualities a mixing bowl should have. 1949 was when the design duo Acton Bjørn and Sigvard Bernadotte started to design the bowl. The first production of the mixing bowl began in 1950. Since Sigvard Bernadotte was the uncle of the princes Margrethe (later the queen of Denmark), he suggested to name the bowls after his niece. The Danish royal house however, only agreed in 1954, starting mass production of the bowl in three different sizes. Twelve years later, in 1966, the mixing bowls were improved with a rubber ring, and the assortment was expanded with further sizes.
In order to honour the 60th name day, there are some special anniversary sets with more practical advantages.
