Josef Frank - Manhattan

The art historian Eva Höög presented the work of designer and artist Josef Frank (1885-1967) in the first-ever UK exhibition of his textiles. The Austrian-born architect moved to Sweden in 1933, where he developed his colourful brand of modernism, working with Estrid Ericson on furniture, glassware, lighting and interior design ideas. Together they redefined what is regarded as Swedish Modern. This exhibition was arranged in association with Millesgården and highlighted Frank’s vibrant fabric designs for Svenskt Tenn alongside a number of his previously unknown watercolours.
