Rörstrand presents Swedish Red list in collaboration with the Environmental Protection Agency and Prince Carl Philip.
Behind the idea and concept development for Rörstrands Swedish Red list is Prince Carl Philip, designer, Rörstrands employee Anna Lerinder stands for form and design and the illustrations taken from Swedish flora and fauna are designed by Stefan Högberg.
Rörstrands Swedish Red list illustrates five endangered species from the Swedish Red List species databank created by the Environmental Protection Agency. The list shows about 4,000 threatened and deprived animals and plants in Sweden and Rorstrand have chosen to focus on the following five: field bumblebee, “rustyback”, snowy owls, larger Capricorn Beetle and green toad.
Rorstrand presented the Swedish Red list at the gallery Sven-Harry in Stockholm with a press conference and briefing for invited guests.

Carl Philip is so happy that Rörstrand took his idea. The collection looks better than he expected.

Otherwise beautiful designs, but that greenish decoration of a plate (the back of a green toad?) looks like a plate forgotten for months without washing after eating pea soup.

Prince Carl Philip accused of plagiarism

Prince Carl Philip accused of plagiarism

All creators are inspired by other creators. But Hedvig Hagwall Bruckner at the advertising agency King wonders if Prince Carl Philip has gone beyond that: "Anyone who looks a little backwards in china history quickly finds that what Prince Carl Philip describes as his idea is remarkably like Paul Hoff's original idea "species at risk" for Gustavsberg. He could not have missed Gustavsbergs serie. But he says nothing about it"

Prince Carl Philip is accused of systematically plagiarizing others' artwork. He is attacked by the advertising agency King's praised creator Hedvig Hagwall Bruckner who believes that Prince's latest tableware collection with the Swedish flora and fauna is a clean copy of Gustavberg's classic series ”Arter i fara" (Species in danger)"
- I get so provoked. Carl Philip's idea? Nonsense, he continues the brazen imitations, she says.
Carl Philip has also previously been accused of plagiarism. A couple of years ago, these involved prince's and Swedish Tenn's Fire Place Screen "Slottet brinner ("The castle is burning") - "clear plagiarism" by Matteo Mocchis and Gspots "1666 AND DCCCXVII AUC," according to Hannes Dükler at Svenska Dagbladet.
Bruckner roars about Prince's latest work - porcelain design to Rörstrand with designs depicting endangered animals and plant species. Prince is reported to have come up with the idea himself, which has become a truth in the Swedish media.
Bruckner says that generally, it is a fact that everyone who works with form and art is inspired by different things. But is it this close to something that has already been made, it is strange that the journalists didn't ask the prince about it. He's getting away. There is a little too friendly approach to Carl Philip. It is also presented as it is he who made things, but then it turns out that he only got the idea, and the artisans and artists in the project, no cred at all.
Bruckner says that "Slottet brinner" and this new serie are both obvious plagiarism. The prince couldn't have missed Gustavsberg's series. Bruckner says that if she had made a porcelain series that was such a copy of Gustavsberg, she felt compelled to say that she have been so inspired by it that she made a modern version of it. But the prince says nothing about it.
Resumé ”Carl Philip fortsätter det skamlösa plagierandet”
Translation

The court argues that Prince Carl Philip who is accused of plagiarism has never even seen Gustavsberg's classic series "Arter i fara" which he accused of having copied.
Prince Carl Philip has not known any similar series when he got the idea for Rörstrands Swedish Red list, says Ulrika Näsholm, information officer at the court.
Ulrika Näsholm then refers to Martina Hansson, PR manager at Fiskars.
Martina Hansson does not see any similarities between collections: I think Rörstrands Swedish Red List is a unique and different concept based on Carl Philip's interest in animals, nature and the environment.
But the similarities are striking even for a layman, both the idea and the design, comment?
- Visually there are no similarities. Our concept is very different, it is a storage concept where one can build their own composition. "Arter i fara" is more collection plates to hang on the wall. Bringing in animals and nature in the interior is a trend and this is a completely different idea, says Hansson.
Resumé Hovet Carl Philip har inte känt till Gustavsbergs serie
Translation

What is interesting in this is - that Carl Philip and his partner Oscar Kylberg have designed for Gustavsberg so far, and this is Carl Philip's first design for Rörstrand. It seems odd that he wouldn't have familiarized himself with Gustavsberg's former designs when he started design for them.

Hedvig Hagwall Bruckner said to Expressen:
- I think it looks like a plagiarism. Then it's a really difficult question of fact and ideas can occur independently of each other, said Hedvig Hagwall Bruckner to Expressen.se.
The idea behind both series is to showcase Swedish endangered species in porcelain. According to her, it is no wonder that someone is inspired by previous works that has seen, either consciously or unconsciously, and then use those as part of the inspiration process.
- I'm not at all critical of porcelain series. I don't mind that he had the chance to do it. But it's strange that no one has drawn parallels to Gustavsberg's "Arter i fara", which is a great and famous serie. I think he or anyone else might have seen "Arter i fara" and talked about that it would be fun to do something like that and then do something, but without comment. In a world with Google it's ought to look at their ideas. I know myself that in amongst when I work so I can make suggestions, but when someone says that it is already done, says Bruckner.
Bruckner believes that people in the prince's proximity are reluctant to make remarks, because of the position that Carl Philip holds.
- I find it hard to believe that Prince Carl Philip is running around for ideas to steal, but I think that because he is who he is people do not say anything on time, says Bruckner.
Bruckner doesn't believe that this will give any consequences for Carl Philip.

The article will be publish soon at Form, a magazine for Nordic architecture and design

Prisoners at the Castle
Carl Philip is innocent of plagiarism. He hasn't designed the products himself, reveals Bo Madestrand. Why doesn't the "design prince" isn't allowed just be a happy chap instead? In the book The Reluctant Monarch Thomas Sjöberg makes a portrait of a man who can't control his own destiny. The King is the wrong man in the wrong place - a rather ordinary guy who most wants to play with cars and pick up girls, but who is forced into a position that he wasn't suited for or particularly wanted.
King is not the only one in the Bernadotte dynasty forced to play a role that doesn't suit him. Last is Prince Carl Philip, who received the man-gaudy task of following predecessor Sigvard Bernadotte as "Design prince." But just like his father Carl Philip seems thrive bad in the role forced upon him. His clumsy attempts as a designer has at best been dismissed as banal student data, at worst as mere plagiarism - from the logo he did as a student for Martha's Vineyard Museum, until the latest project, porcelain collection ”Svenska rödlistan” for Rörstrand as quickly accused of to be a rip-off of Gustavberg's classic series ”Arter i fara”. But this time was Prince himself not as the designer, but only as a "concept developer."
The reason is simple: Carl Philip has basically not drawn any of these projects himself. This is claimed by several people who have independently told to Form of the Prince's lack of involvement in the project that bears his name. The best example is the Fire screen in the form of a castle the prince signed ate Swedish Tenn, but under consistent evidence to have been designed by a designer associated with the company.
The prince maybe works as a postmodern artist. Instead of drawing the products himself he hires out external artisans and blesses them subsequently with his royal signature. The only problem is that there is no aesthetic line in Prince's collection. Just as the king he would like to have allowed to be a happy chap, but is forced into a role that others have written for him: Carl Philip - the reluctant design prince.
The whole article
Form Magazine
Translation

Axel Calissendorff is the royal family's lawyer but also Chairman of Prince Carl Philip's company CPhB Design AB. He confirms Bo Madestrand's claim that it is not only the prince who is behind the design. Unlike Bo Madestrand he sees no problem with it.
- The fire screen has been developed by Prince Carl Philip and designers in collaboration. The final sketch has been designed by the designer. Prince Carl Philip wished that the two would be listed as a designer, the designer did not want to but he had explicitly specify state wishes to remain anonymous. Prince Carl Philip has respected that wish. The measure has my full unqualified support, says Axel Calissendorff.
You see no problem with that prince is the sole designer for the project?
- There is nothing strange or unusual in design projects either now or historically, that it is more involved but a person who stands out for design. Since he has been involved in the design project, I see no problem with it.
Calissendorff says that Swedish Tenn, who sells the fire screen, is aware of how the fire screen has been designed.

Well,if the design is very close to the original, it would be smarter to give credit to the original creator of the paintings. If they openly talk about the sources of the ideas, they may sell it as an hommage to Gustavberg, who´s art looks very beautiful and inspiring!
It is good to use historically relevant images and patterns, but if the original sources are not mentioned it looks like plagiarism. Some pieces from the latest porcellain collection are very well-made and pretty and surely they are going to sell well if there ain´t no plagiarism scandal.

This last article isn't about that the design is close to the original, but that someone else than Carl Philip designs the products and then it is told that Carl Philip has designed them. And people believe that he has done it alone.

In most cases famous people just give their name and someone else is involved in the making of the product.
This happens with parfume, make-up, design,fashion etc. There are a few exceptions like Victoria Beckham who is really involved in the creation and leadership of her eponymous fashion brand, but most of the other celebrities are just giving a company the right to use their name because products sells better whith a famous name on it.
In this case it is disappointing that Carl-Philipp was not involved in the design process, but one of the articles mentioned that the creator of the design wanted to remain anonymous...

DN (Dagens Nyheter) has contacted some sources of Form Magazine. One of the respondents said that the role of design prince creates some expectations and responsibilities. But sadly Carl Philip lacks drive and isn't particularly well-learned.
The brain behind Carl Philip's public role as "design prince" is reported to be Michael Storåkers, current president of Bukowski and board member of the Prince's two companies CPhB Design AB and Bernadotte & Kylberg AB. He is also known as a brand strategist who helped launch Nya Moderaterna. Why he is interested in Carl Philip's trademark as design prince? DN reporter this summer that CPhB Design AB went with 2 245 SEK in profit for 2012. Form magazine states that the combined turnover of the prince both companies is less than 150 000 a year. The reasons can hardly be economical. One of the sources thinks that Michael Storåkers thinks it 's good to be close to the royal family. He has determinedly worked his way into the royal house and then Carl Philip works as one of his instruments. It's a bit sad thing. Carl Philip makes what he is told to do.
Michael Storåkers e-mailed to DN that he has supported a number of young entrepreneurs and creators for many years. Prince is one of many that he knows in his work.
The king's solicitor Axel Calissendorff objects to the suggestion that Prince Carl Philip's interest in design would be a makeup. He has studied designing. He has chosen to almost completely stay outside the official assignments and focus on the design and Bernadotte & Kylberg AB where there are several major launches in the future. The prince is very interested in design issues and is deeply committed and gives considerable time and energy in various design projects, says Calissendorff.

Svenskt Tenn changed yesterday information on their website about the fire screen they sell. Before they told that it was designed by Carl Philip, now they tell as the designer CPB Design AB (Carl Philip's company).

According to Svenskt Tenn now it has been told depart from the original information that in addition to Carl Philip, also other people have taken part of the designing of the fire screen. Marketing Director Thommy Bindefeld says that they thought that they should update the information so that it is the same what the court has now told.

The only Svenskt Tenn was informed during the process of fire screen was that there were more designers involved but how much and what role Prince Carl Philip had in the design process, we were not informed, says Thommy Bindefeld.
- We still do not know exactly what role Prince Carl Philip has had in the development of the work. We took for granted that it was he and a number of other designers who acted as support for him - and he may need in his type of position. When we were shown the first sketches it was presented clearly that it was a design by Prince Carl Philip and what is going on behind this work, we were totally uninformed about. The fact that we took in fire screen in our range was because it was a good product that fits into our range and that could be produced handcrafted in Sweden, continues Bindefeld.

According to Resumé's sources, the designer of the fire screen is designer, author and a former employee of McCann, Eric Ericson. Svenskt Tenn's Marketing Director Thommy Bindefeld neither denies or confirms Resumé data by saying that he has chosen to honor the designer's desire to be anonymous and doesn't want to enter into this discussion.
Eric Ericson has previously been linked to then Storåkers McCann, and is close to Prince Carl Philip's mentor Michael Storåkers. Among other Ericson designed his former manager's office in the agency's office at Stureplan. Eric Ericson has also worked on designs for the Svenskt Tenn before.

Carl Philip's former girlfriend Emma Pernald has worked at McCann since 2005.

From SVD (Svenska Dagbladet)
"Everything felt wrong like hell"

Now comes the designer behind the fire screen "The castle is burning" out.
- It is me who has drawn it, said Eric Ericson.
Ericson says that Michael Storåkers contacted him, Carl Philip needed a tutor. He was skeptical, but it also felt great and he had been a mentor to students before. He thought at first that he would only be a supervisor, but then it turned out that he would do his stuff. With hindsight - everything feels wrong like hell, says Eric Ericson.
Ericson says that Carl Philip is the world's nicest, but he might not have the drive needed. He does not have to sit up at five in the morning, slaving to pay the rent. It was a frivolous collaboration, but he does not want to demonize him, he feels more sorry for Carl Philip. He had studied a short time. He can become a designer, but it takes a lot of hard work to get there.

SVD also contacted Thommy Bindefeld, Marketing Director at Svenskt Tenn, who previously claimed that they did not know the precise role Carl Philip had in the design process.
Can you confirm that is was Eric Ericson behind the fire screen?
- I have just spoken to him and yes, he was.

Bertil Ternert says that Carl Philip declines the discussion about that Eric Ericson designed the fire screen that he was said to have done. Carl Philip doesn't want to debate about it, because the strongest criticism is values ​​if he is good or bad as a designer and it's hard for him to deal with, it's also a four year old history.
But this is indeed a scam, a quite serious one? There is also reason to ask him if he actually designed the other works in his name?
- As said, he renounces this debate.
How does the prince feel about this?
- Of course it concerns him. In the press screenings he has always wanted to highlight all employees, but there was so much focus on him, it is a fact that there are more journalists because he is there.
Bertil Ternert refers other questions to the Chairman of the Prince's design company CPhB Design AB, Axel Calissendorff (the king's solicitor).
Resumé Carl Philip lägger locket på
Translation

And once again Ternert is a disaster. He makes it sound like Carl Philip can't get his mouth open and tell that other people have been designing his "designs" also, because there is so much media around at the publishing of the designs. If Carl Philip really is so shy and incapable, maybe the press person of the company could tell who are the designers.

From Resumé
The designer Eric Ericson says Michael Storåkers held throughout the project with fire screen attributed to Carl Philip. Ericson describes that the contact between him and Carl Philip was established by Ericson's boss Storåkers. Ericson hasn't slept properly for a few days and he feels very bad by what has happened. It wasn't surprising that he was asked to be Carl Philip's mentor, he had done that a lot before. But pretty quickly it came out that more than that was expected from him. Carl Philip wasn't committed and lacks the drive and the skills needed. Ericson feels sorry for him and doesn't know why Carl Philip has agreed to this. At that time Princess Madeleine practiced at Filippa K and then the architecture firm. Maybe they thought they would become designers both. And there is also the association with Sigvard Bernadotte who they thought was good.
Ericson is mostly angry at himself and thinks that many feel cheated. His mentoring for Carl Philip ran out after a relatively short time, simply because it didn't feel serious. Carl Philip wasn't dedicated to the task. One has to sweat as hell to succeed. He hasn't got the requirements. Ericson has tutored him in his design with the cutlery too. But he hasn't drawn them for him, just had comments as a tutor. Ericson thinks the court hates him, they think this is damn hard. He just wants to be honest. Ericson hasn't anything to do with the brand the design prince and the company.
The kng's solicitor Axel Calissendorff says the design bluff is no news to court. Ericson has wished to remain anonymous. The reason he chooses to step forward, the court doesn't comment. Calissendorff says Svenskt Tenn has known from the start how Carl Philip's designs have been done. The prince is a trained graphic designer and has no experience of casting and finishing as Ericson has. To have more people involved in a design project isn't whether odd or unusual. Calissendorff thinks that how the Prince's project in Rörstrand was presented, they have a good model there for Carl Philip's company in the future.

Eric Ericson was interviewed by SVT, a video
What has your role been in the work (fire screen) "The castle is burning"?
- I have designed it.
Carl Philip's spokesperson said that the Prince also helped to draw it. Is that true?
- No, I have a different opinion about it actually.
Where was Prince Carl Philip during the work?
- I don't know. He probably had his assignments and things to do.
Has he submitted sketches or suggestions?
- No, not to this. He was not particularly involved.

Ericson says that he has been in contact with the prince after the entire history was rolled out in the media, Carl Philip thinks of course that this is really hard. Ericson believes that Carl Philip needs to work harder to succeed as a designer. It takes much, much harder job and you have to be dedicated. If one wants to be good it requires hard work. Ericson has told to Carl Philip that he thinks that the things are not done seriously. The swedish and foreign media have been after Ericson these last days and he has not gone out at all.
Ericson Prinsen tycker det är skitjobbigt - Kultur SVT.se
Translation

Carl Philip has decided not to comment.
Charlie Stjernberg, publicity specialist at Prime says to Dagens Media that the strategy has been tested by many times but basically never worked.
- The problem is now that it was not a cheap thing he was said to have designed. For many who bought fire screen can the fact that a royal has made it, be an important factor to purchase it. It is ultimately actually the disappointed customer's questions he doesn't want to answer.
Niclas Ericsson, PR consultant at Westander doesn't believe that Prince's strategy is particularly effective.
- It is almost never wise to decline to comment. He may need a moment to collect himself and think, but as soon as you can you should comment and take responsibility for what you have done. It is sad that the royal family continues with this strategy, it is no more acceptable because you are royalty. And in this context, when Carl Philip is out on a commercial activity, he may follow the playing rules.
Ericsson also believes that the prince's decision not to comment will have adverse consequences.
- It reinforces the sad picture that has emerged of a royal family which closes the door in front of people. Carl Philip misses a chance to try to turn this into something positive, and improve the image of himself. If he thinks he has done right, he should explain why he thinks that and if he has done wrong, he should apologize.

How is the popular reaction in Sweden so far?

I'm reading the swedish newspapers from Finland, to me it looks that this is very widely written and discussed at least at the media. Many articles, columns and blogs. And at the social media people are skeptical "Did someone really believe in the beginning that Carl Philip had designed them himself?"
This was discussed at SVT's Culture panel
Kulturpanelen om bl a prinsplagiat | SVT Play
At SVT's news about Eric Ericson being the designer
Formgivaren träder fram | SVT Play

The republicans are of course enjoying this, one blog:
I feel sorry for the royal family now. Not from a constitutional perspective, I'm a republican, but from a human. A family man who is anxious to "turn the page" as soon as his story comes up, a mother who does everything she can to beautify a dark family history (who does not have a dark history of his family to tell?), A son who dresses in the great costumes and the youngest daughter whose activities beyond shopping streets and the occasional "Tihi" is shrouded in champagne vapors and obscurity. There remains the oldest daughter who seems to be the only reasonable. However. She is doomed, just like the rest of his family. Like her little brother.
The man without a future. Without goals, meaning and purpose. All he seems to be able to perform along the way seems to be to kill time in so many strange ways as possible. As number three in anticipation of a job, the head of state, he will never get. Tragic, isn't it?

Aftonbladet's royal reporter Jenny Alexandersson:
Jenny Alexandersson
If Carl Philip worked with other designers - why not be open about it? Eric Ericsson wanted to be anonymous and I wonder why, on his own initiative or on the advice of someone else? Today he says he regrets his cooperation. And what is Bukowski CEO Michael Storåkers' role in this story? He has according to information conveyed contact between the prince and Ericsson. According Form Storåkers builds the prince's brand and likes to bask in the royal splendor. Who gave Storåkers contract to build a royal brand? Is there a strategy to market the prince as a new design prince even though he may not have the desire?

I guess some people will feel sorry for Carl Philip and others think that it is cocky and presumptuous to act the way he has done, it may have a negative effect on people's opinion of the royal family.

Video of Carl Philip's interview at launch of the fire screen in March 2010. Carl Philip says that he got the inspiration to it from old paintings and brass plates, in which were drawn pictures of the old castle Tre Kronor (Three Crowns). The fire screen is named "Slottet brinner - The Castle is burning". The old castle burned a long time ago. Carl Philip says that the thought came in the mail.

Do you mean "two princes" (they are Carl Philip and Daniel) or do you mean Carl Philip and Madeleine? I think that the queen is quite popular among the people of Sweden if you look the photos and videos of the county visits she and the king made. And Daniel is very popular among the people.

The king's solicitor and the board member of Carl Philip's company, Axel Calissendorff has now said to Svensk Damtidning, that they have taken the policy, that no designer can be anonymous regarding Carl Philip's designs.

Claes de Faire, the chief editor of Resumé:
What is really true, Carl Philip?
Is it easier to sell a product on the claim that the person who designed the product is a prince? Is it easier to get media attention? I think we can agree, it is. Well, it is something to be upset about? I think it anyway.
The value with which Carl Philip experiments with the fire screen is the confidence he has in the Swedish people by his birth. It is valued in economic terms in his annual apanage which will be paid by taxpayers. The symbolism claims that he represents our country and us who live in Sweden. Therein lies his title and the right to livelihood.
When Carl Philip uses that value to advertise and market products that he hasn't designed, it is a major thing and something to react against. The action is to be tricked and is unworthy of a person Carl Philip who by his title means he is above almost all others in this country and, therefore, believes that he should be treated differently than other citizens.
Carl Philip doesn't allow to be interviewed about his work. He doesn't explain how he works or what vision he has on design. He allows no questions at press conferences.
He doesn't want to come out, put the cards on the table and sort out this embarrassing story.
Carl Philip wants just sell stuff expensively that he claims he has designed but which he hasn't.
Resumé Vad är egentligen sant, Carl Philip
