Blue Swedish ceramic mug by designer Marie Louise Hellgren for Höganäs Ceramics.
Höganäs Keramik plays a key role in the Swedish coffee break – the “fika” time when work briefly stops so colleagues can chat and socialise. Höganäs Keramik was founded in 1909, when local craftsmen in south-west Sweden began producing heat-resistant, heat-retaining household ceramics. Coffee-drinking trends come and go, but the Höganäs stoneware mug remains the signal for “fika” time. The company is now a part of Iittala Group, which is also known for BodaNova, Rörstrand and Iittala design brands. The company’s range includes stoneware from Höganäs Keramik, cutlery, glass, serving products from BodaNova and porcelain tableware from Rörstrand.
