Armchair 966 Art nr. 102342

12,200 SEK (inkl. moms)

Josef Frank designed Armchair 966 in 1938 for his own company Haus Und Garten in Vienna. It was shown in New York World’s Fair in 1939, where Svenskt Tenn's innovative and different designs made great success.

With its horseshoe-shaped backrest and flared legs there is clearly some inspiration from ancient klismos- and sulla chairs. The armchair was in Estrid Ericson’s interior at her summerhouse “Twelve Oaks” in 1952 upholstered in a leopard-patterned fabric.

Price excluding fabric.

  • Designer

    Josef Frank grew up in Vienna and studied architecture at Konstgewerbeschule. In the 1920s he designed housing estates and large residential blocks built around common courtyards in a Vienna with severe housing shortages. In 1925 he started the Haus & Garten interior firm together with architect colleagues Oskar Wlach and Walther Sobotka. Svenskt Tenn hired Josef Frank in 1934 and just a few years later he and Estrid Ericson made their international breakthrough. Although he was already 50 when he left the burgeoning Nazism in Vienna for Sweden, Frank is considered one of Sweden’s most important designers. Read more
