Sigvard Oscar Fredrik Bernadotte, Count of Wisborg (Drottningholm, 7 June 1907 – Stockholm, 4 February 2002) was a Swedish industrial designer.
He was the second son of King Gustaf VI Adolf of Sweden and his first wife, Princess Margaret of Connaught and was originally known as Prince Sigvard, Duke of Uppland, but lost his royal titles in 1934 when he married a commoner.

Bernadotte was known for designing everything from luxurious silver objects for Georg Jensen to everyday-use household items in plastic. Among his iconic designs were the Red Clara opener; the Margrethe bowl; the Bernadotte jug, and the Facit Private typewriter. He also designed glasses frames.
