  • Design

    Curves constantly appear in Josef Frank’s designs, not the least in his mirror from the 1930s, with a calyx-like frame and a convex mirror. The inspiration came from the Renaissance period, a time when people often used convex mirrors to capture the entire room as if in a painting.

    Josef Frank grew up in Vienna and studied architecture at Konstgewerbeschule. In the 1920s he designed housing estates and large residential blocks built around common courtyards in a Vienna with severe housing shortages. In 1925 he started the Haus & Garten interior firm together with architect colleagues Oskar Wlach and Walther Sobotka. Svenskt Tenn hired Josef Frank in 1934 and just a few years later he and Estrid Ericson made their international breakthrough. Although he was already 50 when he left the burgeoning Nazism in Vienna for Sweden, Frank is considered one of Sweden’s most important designers. Read more
