  • Svenskt Tenn Karott La Plata

Trivet La Plata Art nr. 102930

240 SEK (inkl. moms)

Svenskt Tenn's trivets are available in several colourful prints by Josef Frank, suitable for everyday use as well as for special occasions. They are sold in a set of two.

La Plata was named after Rio de la Plata, the great river estuary outside of Buenos Aires. When Anne’s House at Millesgården was decorated by Svenskt Tenn in 1950, the sofa group was first covered with Josef Frank’s Drinks print. Carl Milles found it too dark and restless. He had envisioned white wispy clouds on blue skies for his secretary Anne Hedmark. The furniture was subsequently recovered with La Plata, designed by Josef Frank during 1943-1945.

  • Designer

    Svenskt Tenn developed this design using Josef Frank's print.

    Josef Frank grew up in Vienna in an assimilated Jewish family 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

  • Care instructions

    Wipe the placemat with a slightly damp cloth. Avoid contact with wet surfaces on the underside as the colour from the felt can rub off. Never rinse the placemat under running water, as the lamination is sensitive to moisture.

    Do not place extremely hot pots or pans on brass trivets. Brass conducts heat and there is a risk of damaging sensitive surfaces.
