  • Design

    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 cotton lampshade has the Gröna Fåglar print.

    The inspiration for the Gröna Fåglar (Green Birds) print came both from the Trees of Life and from The Green Book of Birds, while Josef Frank lived in New York from 1943-1945.

    Josef Frank/Svenskt Tenn

    Svenskt Tenn developed this design using Josef Frank's print.

    Josef Frank grew up in Vienna in an assimilated Jewish family 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
