To combine different patterns, colours and materials in a timeless manner was Svenskt Tenn’s founder Estrid Ericson’s trademark. For the annual holidays, she loved to arrange a beautifully set table with warm colours and lustful flower compositions. This year, Svenskt Tenn is setting the Easter table in the spirit of Estrid Ericson, with vibrant patterns, colourful decorations and lush spring blooms.
A new arrival this Easter is Rooster in brass, designed by Josef Frank in 1941. The rooster was originally drawn as a wind vane to adorn Estrid Ericson’s summer house Tolvekarna, after which it served as a model for a small rooster to be used as a table decoration.
The print Under Ekvatorn was designed by Josef Frank in September 1941, just before he moved to New York. The print is defined by a vibrant mix of fantasy flowers and demonstrates the finely-tuned balance between dreams and reality that is distinguishing for Josef Frank’s designs. Under Ekvatorn also acted as inspiration for this year’s Easter collection, where artist Evelina Kroon uses the same colour palette to create a contemporary product series that harmonizes with Josef Frank’s classic print.
