Elis Bergh (1881-1954), was an important Swedish designer of lighting, silver, and glass. From 1916 to 1921, Bergh designed lighting fixtures for Herman Bergmanns' art foundry, Scandinavia's leading art foundry which had a long relationship with sculptor Carl Milles. Bergh also designed for the leading Swedish silversmiths, C.G. Hallberg, creating innovative chandeliers noted for their simplicity and beauty. In 1929, he assumed the position of chief designer with the Kosta glassworks creating some of their most celebrated designs.
