- About Svenskt Tenn
Collect things that you love and add joy to your home. Use your favourite plants generously in the interior. A dining room is enlivened by greenery, and Svenskt Tenn's glass cabinets hold pots as well as other decorative items.
Svenskt Tenn’s founder, Estrid Ericson, collected stones and shells, combined plastic flowers with real ones and loved to make discoveries at flea markets. She often placed them in glass cabinets, so as to give the spectator a soothing and captivating moment.
For the collector
Glass cabinet 2077, which was to be Josef Frank’s last one, was designed after his return from New York in 1946. Despite its large size, the cabinet is elegant and graceful.
Josef Frank’s rounded mahogany glass cabinet is small and dainty in its form. It was designed during 1945-1946, when Josef Frank returned to Sweden after some time in New York.
Glass cabinet 649 was designed by Josef Frank in the 1930s and is made both to be placed on the floor or on tables and niches. The glass sides and shelves give the display case an airy feeling.
Josef Frank designed several bentwood chairs during the late 1920s, some of which were produced for Thonet Mundus AG in Vienna. Chair P5’s original sketch is preserved in Svenskt Tenn’s archives, and its form is inspired by a chair that Adolf Gustav Friedrich Schneck created for TON during the same time period.
Josef Frank thought that a dining room chair should be light enough to lift with just a finger, and that it should be easy to move around in an interior. Chair P5 has an open backrest with four rods, which gives the chair a light and airy expression.
