  • Design

    Armchair 652 was designed by Josef Frank in 1936 and three years later, it was used at the Golden Gate Exhibition in San Francisco. This elegant armchair has a high openwork back of rounded spindles joined by a crossbar, which creates a geometrically airy design. Josef Frank often mixed different types of wood and material for an exciting design.

    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

    Svenskt Tenn’s furniture is made from wood that is varnished or coated. Clean with a soft cloth dampened with mild dish detergent or soapy water. Dry with a soft cloth. Do not expose the furniture to prolonged humidity or direct heat or use polish, oil or abrasive cleaners on the furniture. In addition, avoid exposing the furniture to major changes in temperature and humidity. Contact a furniture restorer if the coating or wood gets damaged, as it can get worse if not tended to.

    Keep in mind that furniture fabrics and leather exposed to direct sunlight will fade over time, and that the materials are affected by heat and moisture. Do not apply strong solvents, chemicals, stain removers or degreasers to leather surfaces. Specially adapted products are on the market for impregnation and conditioning.

  • Sustainability and manufacturing

    Material

    Cherry

    Svenskt Tenn’s furniture is manufactured using traditional methods. Our upholstered furniture is manufactured by one of the oldest furniture manufacturers in the country. The cushions are stuffed with down and synthetic down. The down is cleaned with an environmentally friendly detergent and is then sterilised and dried at 120 degrees Celsius to ensure that any bacteria or other impurities have been completely removed. The factory is OEKO- TEX 100 Standard, Class 1 certified, which is the highest possible standard. It is also quality certified in accordance with ISO 9001.

    Production

    Producing Svenskt Tenn’s upholstered furniture is a time-consuming process that requires great craftsmanship. A team of exceptional furniture makers, seamstresses and upholsterers lies behind the production, led by the fourth generation of the Sjögren family.

    O.H. Sjögren’s furniture factory in Tranås has been producing upholstered furniture for Svenskt Tenn since 1982. The factory was founded back in 1902 by Oskar Herbert Sjögren, who early on specialised in the production of sofas and armchairs. Over time production has changed and developed, but the original idea of producing the highest conceivable quality remains the same today, more than 100 years later.

    Nowadays, the company is run by brothers Håkan och Jakob Sjögren, whose goal is to preserve solid quality and craftsmanship, in the same way as their grandfather did at the beginning of the 1900s. Many skilled craftsmen are needed for the work to succeed, and they are all responsible for various stages in the process.

    When the production begins, it is the furniture maker who is responsible for the first stage, namely the furniture’s timber frame. This can comprise up to 50 different wooden parts and each part is sawed and put together by hand. The frame is based on solid Swedish pine, and as with nearly all of the components, is purchased from local suppliers.

    The framework of the furniture begins with the fitting of springs and nozag feathers. The seat has an innerspring resting on nozag feathers, and the back normally contains just nozag feathers, which are specially adapted to each model. When that part is completed, the soft upholstery sections are applied. Each model has up to 20 specially designed components, which differ in thickness and hardness. The components are built up in different layers for maximum comfort, taking into account where in the furniture they are placed. The furniture details are designed by hand, which gives the piece its final form.

    The fabric that will be used to cover the upholstered furniture is rolled out on a cutting board and cut according to templates. A patterned fabric requires more material since both buttons and the joining edges must match as much as possible. The cut-out parts are then sewn together to fit the furniture. The varying characteristics of fabrics require different seam allowances and sewing techniques. Finally, the furniture is upholstered with the selected fabric.
