Fabric Sample Tre Öar i Svarta Havet Linnen 315, Tre Öar i Svarta Havet

In the print, Tre Öar i Svarta Havet (Three Islands in the Black Sea), the black background represents the sea. Islands glimmer like three violet-coloured fields behind vines teeming with flowers, leaves and fruit. This was the first print that Josef Frank designed for Svenskt Tenn. It marked the beginning of a new era for the company and Estrid Ericson had it framed and hung it up in her private apartment on Strandvägen in Stockholm. Josef Frank designed the print in 1936.

Josef Frank’s textiles with the 315 linen designation are best suited for curtains, pillows and other textile products. They can also be used as upholstery fabric on furniture that is not exposed to excessive wear, such as in the home.

  • 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
