It all began in 1942 when Victor Berg founded his store, Flowers, on Rantzausgade in Copenhagen, followed by a second shop on Købmagergade. At the same time, Berg began to import pots from Tuscany. Victor’s son Steffen joined his father at work as a young boy, and he knew early on that he would carry on his father’s passion for flowers and pots. In 1996 he took over the business along with his sister, Sysser.
The siblings traveled to Tuscany to study different types of pottery and clay quality, and gathered the designs that they planned to use in future collections. In Denmark, they also found a quaint old pot model: The Copenhagen Pot. In 2012 the third generation, Victor Berg Junior, came on board.
Today, the family business is owned and operated by two of the family’s friends, Martin Olinger and Frits Kattrup.
