Josef Frank: Patterns–Furniture– Painting

Exhibition, Fashion and Textile Museum, London, UK.


From January 28, 2017 until May 7, 2017
One can explore the work of designer and artist Josef Frank 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 rede ned what is regarded as Swedish Modern. This exhibition in association with Millesgården, Stockholm highlights Frank’s vibrant fabric designs for Svenskt Tenn alongside a number of his previously unknown watercolours.
