Fabric Sample Baranquilla Linen 450, Baranquilla, Wine

5 USD (inkl. moms)

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. By delaying the pattern repeat Josef Frank was able to get the design to flow. This gives the feeling of no real direction, and it therefore becomes just as beautiful from any angle. 

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.

  • Designer: Josef Frank

    Josef Frank grew up in Vienna 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
