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 Teheran print.
The name Teheran (Tehran), as well as the small, radiant flowers in the foreground, indicates that the print is an interpretation of a Persian carpet. The lobed leaves in varying colours are reminiscent of the plant dye colours madder, wild mignonette and indigo. Teheran was designed in the 1940s, but it was printed for the first time in 1991.
This lampshade goes with Table Lamp 2575.
