List of products by designer Josef Frank

(1885—1967)

Josef Frank was born in Austria, but he fled Nazism for Sweden at the age of 50, where his work came to define Scandinavian modern design. Frank studied architecture at the Vienna University of Technology and later taught at the Vienna School of Arts. In Sweden, he started to work at Svenkt Tenn, where he produced over 2,000 furniture sketches and 160 textile designs. Frank was against puritanical modernist principles, so he developed his own style of modernism, which was freer, functional, more artistic and included nature’s colors and forms. In addition to his architectural projects, Frank was a painter and created furniture, wallpaper and carpet designs.
