  • 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

    All types of feather cushions need to be puffed up to maintain their resilience. Shake and puff up the cushions regularly and knead them to loosen up any feather bunches.

    The legs are screwed on and may need to be tightened from time to time.
    For additional protection we recommend ordering extra covers for the armrests. Svenskt Tenn also offers stain guarding for further protection.
