Vase | Tatlin | Ivar Ålenius Björk
The Tatlin Vase design Ivar Ålenius Björk re-emerges!
Ivar Ålenius Björk (1905 – 1978) worked as a sculptor, mostly known for bust portraits. His public ornaments can be seen in Trelleborg, Simrishamn, Ängelholm and Lund. He also designed a series of products for a no longer active Swedish company called Ystad-Metall. Ystad-Metall produced a large number of classic design items in the 1920s – 1960s. The Lily candlestick was one of these products and it has become a design classic that features in many international design magazines to this day.
The Tatlin vase is another of these iconic products from Ivars hand. Skultuna has now agreed with the relatives of Ivar Ålenius Björk in order to take up the production of the vase again.
