    Josef Frank was inspired by the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York when he created Hawai. In the museum he found a remarkable collection of Trees of Life from the north side of the Indian peninsula. The Hawaii print, with its matted stems, is similar to these trees. The print was designed in 1943-1945 and is one of Josef Frank’s largest prints with a 180 cm repeat.

    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
