“Will Frank’s flowers ever wilt? It doesn’t seem so. The supreme composition, the buoyancy of colour, the organic forms and the artistic esprit have continued to captivate and enchant one generation after the other.”
Kristina Wängberg-Eriksson, author of the book Josef Frank Textile Designs.
Josef Frank’s botanic designs mix real flowers such as tulips, forget-me-nots and lily of the valley with plants and fruit motifs, inspired by different places and cultures of the world. Together, the botanical motifs create a unique and exciting floral world. In the spring of 2020, bonds will be tied between this world and Sofiero's former resident, King Gustav VI Adolf, his extensive garden interest and herbarium collection.
