Evelina Kroon Easter 2021 Svenskt Tenn

Artist Evelina Kroon surrounds herself with colour in every aspect of life. Best known for her graphic check compositions, she finds harmony in repetition and uses unexpected combinations to create texture and tension. The inspiration for this year’s Easter collection was found in Josef Frank’s print Under Ekvatorn, where the intense colours have been transformed into a colourful and contemporary product series that complements Svenskt Tenn’s Easter collection.

In 1941, Josef Frank designed Under Ekvatorn - one of his most vibrant and colourful prints ever created for Svenskt Tenn. Now, 80 years later, the artist Evelina Kroon uses the print as inspiration for the Easter collection of 2021, where Frank’s colour palette is given new life through dynamic compositions of strict lines. In Evelina’s intriguing design, the check is in focus, while fine, tactile and organic details can be discerned in both lines and structure. The collection consists of a handwoven table cloth, napkins, placemats and hand blown egg ornaments in clear glass, all painted by hand.

“I love crafts in every form and am fascinated by the meeting between different colours, materials and compositions. The checkered pattern is a recurring theme in my artistry, but I find inspiration in everything that surrounds me: in nature, in everyday life, in contemporary and historical art.”
