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 Baranquilla print.
In Josef Frank’s Baranquilla print, four lovingly detailed lianas are crafted into a beautiful whole full of lush fruits, flowers and leaves. The print was designed around 1943-45 during Josef Frank’s stay in New York – a place where many of his imaginative designs, with trees of life growing freely, flowers and fruits took form.
Baranquilla was named after the Colombian port city by the Caribbean Sea, which Josef Frank and his wife Anna passed on the exile from Sweden to America in 1941, in the midst of World War II.
This lampshade goes with Table Lamp 2575.
