A century has passed since the founding of Svenskt Tenn. From timeless pewter designs under the guidance of founder Estrid Ericson to the remarkable collaboration with Austrian architect and designer Josef Frank that spanned for more than three decades. 100 years of characteristic interior design, patterns, furniture, and textiles, along with numerous collaborations with some of the most skilled craftsmen and designers of our time.
In this lecture series, we invite you to join inspiring talks and engaging discussions with representatives from Svenskt Tenn and external experts. Together, we will delve into the fearless aesthete Estrid Ericson and her resolute start: her move to Stockholm, and how it all began with a small pewter workshop on Smålandsgatan in Stockholm. We will get to know Josef Frank, sometimes described as an ‘accidental designer’, and how the legacy they both left behind is preserved through an unwavering focus on craftsmanship, quality, and sustainability.
