Josef Frank designed a lampshade for every one of his lamp models. Originally, all of them were in white textile, but Estrid Ericson later had them sewn up in textiles with prints of Josef Frank and other designers. This linen lampshade has the Mirakel print.
Josef Frank designed more than 160 prints for Svenskt Tenn, the majority of which contained imaginative botanical motifs. For Josef Frank, using nature’s colours and forms in interior design was a way to breathe and feel free in the enclosed space of a room. The Mirakel (Miracle) print probably got its name after Josef Frank’s comment: "It was a miracle that such a small repeat could be the source of something so grand". Mirakel is one of his earliest prints, designed back in the late 1920s.
This lampshade goes with Table lamp 1819.
