Myeah, they would be a bit of a waste as "everyday ware", but in the right setting the flowervases could be nice...
I have seen worse design by royals

I could have designed those and it would have been much cheaper...

They look like something Estelle could have painted.

Carl Philip wasn't very willing to pose for photos, at this article is an old photo.

Carl Philip and Oscar Kylberg told that the inspiration for the collection comes from the sea.
- Oscar has a summer home on the West Coast, and on the East Coast. The sea is what binds us together with Denmark, and then we got stuck on the color scale and the shifting feeling like the sea and water gives, says Carl Philip.
The series consists of a number of bowls and vases made of aluminum and enamel, a material that has not been quite popular since the 50's.
- But it is starting to appear more and more, says Carl Philip.
They began sketching the collection two years ago, and have worked extensively with watercolors and inks to bring out the right feeling. The series' design language pulls slightly to the Japanese, and there is perhaps a kinship.
- Both Scandinavian and Japanese design is all about to peel off and let the function speak, says Oscar Kylberg
The idea is that the bowls should be able to stand on the table as decoration, but it works to serve cold food in them too. The series is called Stockholm, and the collection Aquatic.
- We are working constantly. When I'm not on official mission, we sit in the studio and work. We sit opposite each other and send sketches over the desk, sometimes the other draws over what the other has done. Sometimes it's one that gives gas and the other that slows down or vice versa.
- We have never had a fight. We have basically the same view on things. In contrast, we laugh a lot, says Carl Philip.

The products are sold for two weeks in Sweden only at NK, then at some other places too.
Those attending at the press breakfast at 08.30, got a gift, a vase to take home.
"Great presents to graduates and bridal couples", according to this blog

I agree. CP is still trying to find what to do with his life. He loves racing and designing but he isnt very talented. I thought he would have stopped after the scandal.

I have understood that Bernadotte & Kylberg's textile collection for Åhléns last autumn has been quite popular. The spring collection will be soon available in Åhléns.
Last year Bernadotte & Kylberg designed in the spring and in the autumn collections of sports jackets to A-one, in the autumn textile collection to Åhléns and in December tableware Signum to Gustavsberg porcelain.

It only takes a quick glance at STOCKHOLM Aquatic-collection designed by Bernadotte & Kylberg for Stelton to realize that something innovative, unique and beautiful've seen the light. Differently shaped vases and bowls made of aluminum and enamel, exquisitely decorated in elegant design with inspiration from distinct shades of color, surfaces and patterns of the archipelago and the Baltic Sea.

I appreciate the fact he tries to find his place, unsuccessfully though

The press, interior designers and other invited to the press meeting seem to be excited about the vase they got as a present, lovely tulips at the vase at this blog.

And all the comments at the blogs are very positive.

At this blog someone writes that Bernadotte & Kylberg's bowls and vases remind finnish Marimekko's Weather Diary dishes from 2013, photos of that down at the blog. The colours are similar...

The only thing similar is that both have blobs of colour and are in the blue colour family. Both are hardly mind-shattering designs.

The plates from both sets look to me like someone has forgotten to wash their painting palette. The vase from 'Stockholm Aquatic' is the best piece from the collection.

Oscar Kylberg has given an interview to NWT, a newspaper from Värmland. Oscar is 42 years old, engaged with Maria Nilsson and they have son Walther, 20 months.

Oscar went to boarding school Lundsberg, and then to a British school in Saudi Arabia, where his family moved because of his parents' jobs. Then back to Sweden to boarding school in Sigtuna, and then on to economics studies at the University of Monaco.
- I sat on the economics lectures and discovered that I preferred drawing the teachers than listened to what they said.
He also made an excursion to the television world.
- I ran a web design agency in Halmstad, together with Carl Bennet, but we suffered like many others IT death around 2000.
In Halmstad time he met a program manager on MTV, Jonsered.
- I pitched an idea for him that was based on an interactive cartoon soap for the web. This was at ISDN-time. Nothing came of it but those I met needed a talented creator to a new company in Stockholm.
TV media inspired Oscar. He managed to sell a format into China. The format was a reality show about shopping, "Big time spender", and was a huge success for the Chinese CETV. Oscar lived in China a couple of years.
- It was "the ride of my lifetime". Completely crazy. We moved around to different cities where we recorded. The program was about educating consumers in what is quality when you shop. We had between 80 and 100 million viewers on the opening night.
After studying graphic design at Forsberg his design career really started in Sweden.

Through mutual friends he met Carl Philip, and the two hit it off immediately.
- I noticed that he had a passion for design and expression. He was a "diamond in the rough", had an incredible talent and great frame of reference. Had very strong ideas but did not know how to formulate them. It's fun to be there when someone finds his thing and the floodgates opened.
Working with the prince is no different to working with anyone. Three or four days a week they are in the studio fully focused on the job. They draw, look books, listen to music and have fun together. And they contribute equally to the final result.
- There is no prestige or hypocrisy between us. We owe each other the total sincerity. It's about respect.
Oscar describes the prince as a thoroughly nice person.
- Thoughtfulness is his strongest trait. If someone comes up to get an autograph or take pictures, he is always friendly. He can also say no in a friendly way.
He doesn't deny that the prince gives a lot of free publicity to their joint venture.
- It is clear that he is a "door opener". But it's a double-edged sword, if we would do something bad it would come out quickly.
Their PR agency has the paradoxical task of holding back the pressure from the media.
- Yes, a little bit so it is actually. We are giving very few interviews, and only together. This is an exception - but that's just because you come from Värmland.

They have primarily chosen to work with classic Swedish brands. The cooperation with porcelain factory Gustavsberg resulted in "Swedish animals".
- Gustavsberg is a progressive and enjoyable company. We wanted to take back the humor a bit and drew animals. It was sculpted, three dimensional.
The serie launched at the NK department store in Stockholm has been a great success.
Then they designed a series of sports jackets to A-one, which came out in 2014 and are sold on the MQ.
Last fall Åhléns launched a textile collection "Design by Bernadotte & Kylberg" consisting of rugs, cushions, throws, towels and bedding textiles.
- There is a difference between designing towels to make a great "centerpiece" of SEK 25 000. It is more difficult to succeed with a cheaper thing used every day that people only buy if they really like it.
The series sold in 77 Åhléns department stores have broken all sales records.
- After a week all was sold. They placed a new order immediately to have something for Christmas.
The pattern on the textiles is a version of a pattern they used at a charity project for Childhood Foundation. They designed a rug that was auctioned off at Bukowski.
- Childhood is like a parachute for the abused children. That's how we came up with it.

Now the focus is on the new series "Stockholm", bowls and vases for Stelton. The series will be sold worldwide. What Stelton cooperation will mean for the company future is difficult to say. But they have no plans to hire employees.
- We do not hurry. We work on long term. The most important thing is that it is we who make the stuff. There will never be 25 designers with us. We can think of bringing in students and collaborate with schools, perhaps, but it is we who do the design.

Bernadotte & Kylberg is about to launch a design collaboration with Hästens in Köping. Carl Philip and Oscar Kylberg visited for many hours Hästens last Wednesday.
- He looked at everything - mattresses, beds, everything we have, says Jonken Gustavsson, a warehouse worker at Hästens.
Since last Monday, the staff at Hästens knew about the royal visit but were strictly forbidden to reveal anything to the public. The prince specifically asked not to be photographed. He was very grateful that he could spend the day in Köping unnoticed.
- It was fun. Everyone has been excited all week, says Marcus Eriksson, who works in the warehouse.
After the duo had gone through Hästens' stock they had a meeting with the leaders. Besides Design by Bernadotte & Kylberg attended CEO Lasse Bååth, board member Jan Ryde, Marketing manager Karin Wikberg-Taylor and Production Manager Tobias Stople.
According to the newspaper the meeting went well and now Hästens hopes to write a contract with Bernadotte & Kylberg.
The article has an old photo, because Carl Philip didn't want to be photographed.
