Stig Lindberg, who was artistic director at Gustavsberg’s porcelain factory, discovered Lisa’s unique talent at adapting her creative ideas to the many challenges of factory production.
I witnessed her pushed up against her limits just a few days earlier, when, hours before the cover shoot for this issue, she was suddenly taken ill.
There is a stack of Fenty Beauty campaign printouts piled high on her desk awaiting her approval; a flood of unanswered emails from Fenty team members in various time zones, all happily waiting on her too.
Right now, though, there is a more pressing issue on the agenda, one that demands her full attention: Rihanna has decided that it’s time to fix my love life.“So wait, you’re on a dating app?
But not even adamantine willpower could overcome the exhaustion that Rihanna was feeling in that moment.
“I don’t know if it was too much magnetic energy for me, but it sure knocked me on my ass,” she says in Paris, explaining that she often experiences the same symptoms around this time of the year, usually between touring and awards-show season.
The Mid -Century modernist touch is apparent in many of her works.
In 1981 she left Gustavsberg to work freelance as a sculptural artist and designer for various Swedish companies and the German porcelain manufacturer Rosenthal.
It was launched as an “aesthetic laboratory” within the factory frames.
The studio was described at the time as an idyllic oasis in industrijäktet, an idéverkstad, where the work could be done in peace and quiet without chords and office hours, as a “spiritual cycle path alongside the mass production autostrada”.
“Even mentally, just to be away from my phone, to be in the moment, that has been key for my growth,” she says. Pulling double duty as both badass rock star and savvy businesswoman across a working orbit that spans California (home base for her new lingerie collaborators) and Europe can take a physical toll on even the most intergalactic of superstars.
Since giving up her apartment in So Ho, New York, last fall, Rihanna spends most of her time in either London or Los Angeles, though to hear her tell it, she basically lives on a plane.
And when you’re Rihanna, and the world is your oyster, then time is elastic.
