  • Cushion Pyramid - Small, Linen, Aristidia, Pyramide, Red, Josef Frank/Svenskt Tenn | Svenskt Tenn

Cushion Pyramid Small, Linen, Aristidia, Pyramide, Red

160 USD (inkl. moms)

This large pyramide cushion is a new, playful twist on Svenskt Tenn’s classic cushion with Josef Frank's Aristidia print. 

Josef Frank designed Tang, quite a bold print for its time, while in the coastal region of Falsterbo in the late 1920s. The name is derived from the Swedish word for seaweed, as the design contains several elements of the sea in the form of seaweed and starfish. The name Tang was later changed to Aristidia, after the Greek writer Aristides (150-100 B.C.).

    Design: Josef Frank/Svenskt Tenn
    Material: Linen
    Inner cushion: Duck feathers
    Size: 40x40x40 cm

    The design is printed on the front and back of the cushion. Each individual cushion is unique and therefore the placement of the design varies from the cushion in the picture.

    The dimensions of the inner cushion are shown in the box. The cushion cover, which has a zipper at the bottom, is a couple of centimetres smaller so the cushion will look nice and plump.

    The inner cushion is included in the price.

  • Designer: 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
