As the name implies, the Torsten and Wanja Söderberg’s Prize was inaugurated to commemorate the Göteborg branch of the Söderberg family tree. Torsten and Wanja Söderberg were members of the Association of Friends of the Röhsska Museum from 1938. Torsten became a committee member in 1948 and was its chairman between 1950 and 1960, as his son Tomas is to this day. In addition, Torsten Söderberg was a member of the Röhsska Museum board, appointed by the Göteborg Museum foundation.
There are thus close links between the Söderberg family and the Röhsska Museum, which have been further strengthened by a special design and decorative art prize inaugurated to commemorate the centenary of Torsten Söderberg’s birth. The Torsten and Wanja Söderberg Prize currently amounts to SEK 1 million. It is administered by the Röhsska Museum, to be annually awarded to an active Nordic designer or craftsman. In addition to the considerable prize sum, the prizewinner will be given the opportunity of exhibiting his/her work in a separate exhibition at the Röhsska Museum in conjunction with the prize giving ceremony. Every six years, the prize can be divided into five equal parts and used to reward especially important work by critics in the field, one from each Nordic country. When the prize is awarded to people within the field of industrial design, it can be shared equally by several people who have worked together on the same project. The Torsten and Wanja Söderberg Prize has been awarded to the following persons since 1994:
