Josef Frank (1885-1967) grew up in Vienna, Austria – in a Jewish family and studied architecture at Konstgewerbeschule. Josef Frank was Vienna modernism’s foremost figures. He was against puritanical principals and feared that standardised interiors would make people too uniform. Josef Frank began at Svenskt Tenn in 1934 and few years later had his international breakthrough. Svenskt Tenn at the World Expositions in Paris in 1937 and New York in 1939 was completely ideal of the time with its bold contrasts in materials and colours. With great attention they became the expression for “Swedish Modern”.
