    Vase 8 was designed in 1957 by Josef Frank for Svenskt Tenn. As a protest against the many swan-shaped fashion vases of his time, he designed this new, bolder shape among others. The vase is as practical as it is beautiful, both with and without flowers.

    The vase is blown in a wooden mold at Skruf Glassworks in Småland, Sweden.  The wooden mold changes character with time and the shape of the vases can therefore vary. Occasional bubbles can occur in the glass. This is a sign of real craftsmanship and should be seen as a friendly greeting from the glassblower to you.

    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

  • Care instructions

    Keep in mind that humidity can damage table tops and other surfaces. Wipe the vase dry immediately after filling it with water, and always keep it dry to reduce the need for polishing.

  • Sustainability and manufacturing

    Material

    Glass

    Svenskt Tenn cares about the environment and sustainability, and the classic glass items in its range are no exception. When Skruf Glassworks in Småland produces glass items for Svenskt Tenn, it uses lead-free glass pellets that are mixed with approximately 30 per cent shards, the broken glass leftovers from manufacturing. The pellets come from Emmaboda, which is about 20 kilometres from the glassworks. Skruf uses an electric furnace, powered only with electricity from water and wind power. Waste, such as corrugated board and other combustibles, are sorted and sent for recycling. Any broken glass that is not used by the glassworks is sold to glass studios, which means that almost all of the glass is recycled. The premises themselves are heated with the help of wood pellets.

    Purchasing Swedish glass cuts down on transport distances, helping to avoid a heavy climate impact, and by producing timeless products of high quality and a long service life, we are taking efforts not to waste the earth’s resources. Classic glass objects are rarely thrown away. Instead, they are preserved throughout the years and can be resold or passed down as gifts to the next generation.

    Glass from Skruf

    Glass from Skruf requires enormous precision of the glass blower, correct glass mass and right temperature. In the manufacturing process, there are always at least two people involved. The first step is to collect glass from the oven and form a small glass ball; a so-called "post". To this post you add some more glass mass until it is large and stable enough to carry the mass needed to blow the object. The hot glass mass is released into a graphite mould while the craftsman gently blows it into its right shape. After that, the glass is cooled in a refrigerator from 500 down to 35 degrees. This procedure takes about four and a half hours. Finally, the top is removed, and the edge polished to a smooth surface.
