  • Design

    Josef Frank felt that a dining room chair should be so light that it can be lifted with only one finger, and that the user should easily be able to move the chair around in the room. He designed this graceful chair in 1925, for his company Haus und Garten in Vienna.

    In order to create excitement in the design, Josef Frank often chose to mix different kind of woods and materials. So even in this classic chair.

    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
