Svenskt tenn, Stockholm. The company was founded by Estrid Ericson in 1924. Ten years later she was joined by the Austrian architect Josef Frank, who was fleeing Nazism. He went on to become one of Sweden’s most important designers, providing a bridge between Vienna and Stockholm, http://www.wgsn.com/blogs/travel/stockholm-svenskt-tenn-exhibition.

Josef Frank had an enormous impact on the history of Swedish design. The Austrian architect is considered to be one of Sweden’s most important designers.

The Liljevalch sofa from 1934 was the first piece of furniture that Josef Frank designed for Svenskt Tenn. It was shown for the first time at the Liljevalch Art Gallery in Stockholm and hence the name “Liljevalch Sofa”. In a letter to Estrid Ericson Frank wrote that he had designed this large and generous sofa in protest over the prevailing functionalism and boring Swedish handicrafts.

Josef Frank designed the fabric-clad 522 cabinet in 1934-35 after turning his gaze to Great Britain. Dressing furniture with fabric was part of the British furniture culture and what appealed to Frank was the contrast between the hard wood and the soft fabric. The cupboard is made of mahogany and covered with Celotocaulis textile.
