“Josef Frank’s furniture has originality, an unmistakable touch and is well made.”
– Estrid Ericson
Svenskt Tenn has worked with furniture made from wood since the 1930s and the material is one of the most dominant ones in the company’s production of furniture today. The manufacture of Svenskt Tenn’s wooden furniture requires extensive knowledge of the material. A large part of the craftsmanship takes place at the fine carpentry shop, Eriksson and Sons outside of Nyköping, where every part of the furniture is made by hand. All of Svenskt Tenn’s furniture suppliers are subject to the EU Timber Regulation, which has strict rules regarding the timber trade. Svenskt Tenn also supports the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) and we encourage our furniture suppliers to product products in FSC-certified wood.
During his time at Svenskt Tenn, Josef Frank designed close to 120 different varieties of upholstered furniture pieces. In today’s product range there are a number of sofas, stools and armchairs in different sizes. Upholstered furniture is manufactured at Sjögren’s, a family-owned furniture factory in Tranås. A high level of craftsmanship goes into the production of furniture here with very few automated tasks.
“It doesn’t matter if you mix old and new, combining furniture styles, colours and prints. Things that you like will fuse into one calm entity.”
– Josef Frank
Josef Frank often spoke about “the room’s clarity” and meant that a room should easily be interpreted as seeming pleasant. An example is to have furniture on high legs to discern the border between the floor and the wall. He felt that interior design and furnishings should always start with the human being. He stressed for example that the form of chairs – in contrast to, for example, furniture for storage – should be based on the human body’s anatomy and not adapted according to other furniture to create a certain style.
When buying furniture from Svenskt Tenn, you always receive a certificate of authenticity with the furniture's title, designer, date and receipt.
