  • Design

    This pattern is inspired by the Gothic quatrefoil. Instead of using a relief, Josef Frank punched holes in the sheet metal cylinder. The mix of different materials is typical of Josef Frank: the frame is of brushed steel with an upper rim of polished brass.

    Josef Frank

    Josef Frank

    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

  • Sustainability and manufacturing

    Material

    Steel & Brass

    Brass comprises 65% copper and 35% zinc. It has long been called “poor man’s gold”. A large part of Svenskt Tenn’s brass products are manufactured at Humstorp Metall in Västergötland, largely from recycled brass. At Humstorp, they are constantly working on choosing the most environmentally friendly alternatives when purchasing. Waste is minimised throughout the manufacturing process and any waste metal that nevertheless occurs is sent to recycling. Furthermore, an independent solar power facility provides approximately 40% of the workshop’s electricity consumption.

    This is how the waste bin is manufactured

    A large part of Svenskt Tenn’s pewter and brass range is produced by Humstorp Metall; these are products that require a meticulous approach and great craftsmanship.

    The waste bin is manufactured of perforated sheet metal which is cut, rolled and soldered. The iron sheet for the bottom and the brass sheet for the top are spin formed. The brass part for the top is polished and clear varnished. The rolled perforated sheet is thereafter assembled together with the bottom before being painted. Finally, the brass frame is attached to the waste bin, before the finished product is packaged and sent to Svenskt Tenn.
