  • Designer: 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

    To clean, use a soft cloth dampened with a mild detergent or soapy water. Make sure to wipe the surface dry immediately.

    Lacquered or coated pieces can be harmed by direct contact with heat and prolonged humidity. Scratches can be extra visible on colour-coated surfaces, but at the same time, these are also part of the table’s character. If there is deeper damage to the metal, we recommend you to contact an expert to avoid corrosion.
