    Svenskt Tenn’s classic cushions are loved all over the world; from Stockholm to New York and Shanghai. This cotton cushion has the Mille Fleurs print.

    This early print that Josef Frank first called Tulipan, was later remade to suit the new printing technique that was coming into use in the 1940s. With this change, the print was no longer rotated, but instead built upon a repetition of rectangles. The new print, which was also in a different colour scheme, was called Mille Fleurs, the French translation for A Thousand Flowers.

    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
