  • Svenskt Tenn Vase Josef Frank Nr13
  • Svenskt Tenn Vase Josef Frank Nr13 Blommor

Vase No13 Glass, Clear

180 USD (inkl. moms)

Vase 13 was designed in 1957 by Josef Frank for Svenskt Tenn. As a protest against the many swan-shaped fashion vases of his time, he designed this new, bolder shape among others. The vase is as practical as it is beautiful, both with and without flowers.

The vase is blown in a wooden mold at Skruf Glassworks in Småland, Sweden. The wooden mold changes character with time and the shape of the vases can therefore vary. Occasional bubbles can occur in the glass. This is a sign of real craftsmanship and should be seen as a friendly greeting from the glassblower to you.

  • 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
