Royal visit

On March 20, 2013, King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia visited the Bruno Mathsson Center in Värnamo. After the King and Queen arrived and were greeted, Bruno Mathsson's works and history were shown. The royal couple, who had chosen this destination themselves, seemed to appreciate the tour very much.

This was followed by a sitting where the royal couple were offered hot water and a kind of candy called polka-pigs. This very odd menu was served together with the background story: When Bruno Mathsson arrived at the office in the morning, water would be heated in a coffee pot, after a while he lifted the lid of the coffee pot to smell if the water was hot enough. When the water was hot enough, it was served together with a polka-pig that melted in the mouth.
