Textile Anakreon Art nr. 100583

1,500 SEK (inkl. moms)

Anakreon is based on a 3,500 year-old fresco from the palace in Knossos on Crete. It was Estrid Ericson who first discovered the Minoan mural with its blue bird, which Josef Frank transformed into the Anakreon print in 1938. It is named after the Greek poet (Anacreon) from 500 B.C., famous for his love- and drinking songs.

Josef Frank’s textiles with the 315 linen designation are best suited for curtains, pillows and other textile products. They can also be used as upholstery fabric on furniture that is not exposed to excessive wear, such as in the home.

  • 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
