Bernadotte & Kylberg was founded in 2012 and has designed products for many brands. The design duo design both industrial as graphic products with the user in focus.

In addition to designing glasses and bowls, the Prince has also designed jackets. This happened in 2014 for the clothing brand “A-one”. The jackets came out in five different models, three for women and two for men. The jackets were very popular both in Sweden and abroad. The jackets cost between 1995 and 2995 Swedish crowns; this is between 190 and 290 British pounds and between 240 and 345 US dollars.
