Navigare necesse est, vivere non necesse.
– Gnaeus Pompeius Magnus
For spring 2023, several new cushions and fabrics will be launched in the range. In addition to Josef Frank’s Navigare, we are also presenting the latest from fashion designer and creator Lars Nilsson, who designed the Capri collection for Svenskt Tenn in 2018. The Wisteria pattern has now been added to the collection, with painted stripes in blue-green tones, inspired by the flowering wisteria in the garden surrounding Villa San Michele on the island of Capri.
The textiles are produced and printed in Italy, where the collection was also created. It was inspired by the nature, flowers and the graphic patterns formed by the horizon against the Bay of Naples and the dramatic mountains. The airy feeling and light watercolour tones of the collection fit well with the colours and shapes of Josef Frank’s classic designs and furniture.
