Tree in bloom

Exhibited at Strandvägen 5 30.05.2024 – 25.08.2024

Let us escape from iron and concrete
And car horns and the roar.
Here it is green. Here the birds sing.
Here the poem catches a breath…

Bo Bergman to Estrid Ericson, 1930

A place to energise and regenerate. For creativity and inspiration. This year’s summer exhibition at Strandvägen 5 is linked to the history of Svenskt Tenn; to Estrid Ericson’s beloved summerhouse Tolvekarna (the Twelve Oaks) and Josef Frank’s lush tree of life.

Cabinet 852, or “The Flora Cabinet” is being relaunched. Its history stems back to 1930 when Estrid Ericson, together with her friend Bo Bergman, visited Carl Linnaeus’ (Carl von Linné) summer residence and was enchanted by the flora poster prints on the bedroom walls. The Paradiset (Paradise) planter by Nils Fougstedt, which has not been in production since 1928, will also be presented along with Josef Frank’s Träd i blom (Tree in bloom) pattern, launched for the first time since it was designed in 1935-1940.
