    The Röhsska Museum prize committee for the Torsten and Wanja
    Söderberg Prize, with funds from Torsten Söderberg Foundation and
    Ragnar Söderberg Foundation, has unanimously decided to award
    Norwegian jewellery engineer Sigurd Bronger this year’s prize of SEK
    1,000,000.

    The prize committee’s comments:
    “This year’s award winner is a jewellery engineer whose works invite us
    on a journey into a mechanical wonderland, full of boys’ dreams and
    romantic, joyful pranks. Sigurd Bronger takes us back to the early design language of
    industrialism and the innovations of the Renaissance, or forward to
    utopian visions of the future. Time is a material alongside precious
    metals, diamonds and wood, all meticulously selected and worked during
    a long, sterling process.”

  4. The Röhsska Museum prize committee for the Torsten and Wanja Söderberg Prize, with funds from the Torsten Söderberg Foundation, has decided to award Ann-Sofie Back this year’s prize of SEK 1 million. This is the first time the Torsten and Wanja Söderberg Prize has been awarded to a Swedish fashion designer.

    Ann-Sofie Back / BACK
    After completing her studies at Beckmans College of Design in Stockholm and Central St. Martins in London she started her own brand Ann-Sofie Back in 2001, and in 2005 she launched BACK. Since 2009 Ann-Sofie Back now divides her time between being Creative Director for her own company BACK and the H&M-owned brand Cheap Monday. BACK is internationally renowned for its distinctive avant-garde design, worn for example by Lady Gaga, Kate Moss, Robyn, Rihanna, Icona Pop, Titiyo and HRH Victoria, Crown Princess of Sweden.

    In spring 2014 Ann-Sofie Back can be seen at the Swedish Fashion 2000–2015 exhibition at Sven Harry’s Art Museum in Stockholm. During the autumn, Swedish public broadcaster Sveriges Television will be showing a design portrait of the prize winner in an episode of the weekly culture show K-Special.

    “Ann-Sofie Back is a unique representative of the acclaimed Swedish fashion scene, which has grown in strength over the past 15 years and which today is of an international quality. From initially being seen as too narrow in her expression, over time Ann-Sofie Back has proved that her design ideas work both for the particularly picky fashion consumer and for the mass market,” says Museum Director Tom Hedqvist.

    The prize committee’s comments:
    Ann-Sofie Back’s artistry is characterised by intuition and paradox. In an ongoing battle with the fashion system she herself is a part of, she has with unerring integrity explored the everyday and the socially stereotypical. With continuity while maintaining distance, she has over time been able to prove that having faith in the aesthetics of resistance makes it possible to create fashion that is both commercial and expressive.

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:
