  • 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

  • Care instructions

    Do not plant the flower directly into the Hortus pot since the water will damage the brass surface. The surface is also sensitive to objects that can scratch and mar it as well as certain polishing cloths and sponges. Candle wax and grease can be washed off with hot water and then polished with a soft cloth. Avoid using brushes, steel wool and the like.
