  • Design

    To mix different materials were typical for Josef Frank’s design. A tabletop in Italian porphyry meets a base in solid lacquered brass in this coffee table. The characteristic legs can be found in several of Josef Frank’s designs. The table has been depicted in photographs from different interiors, for instance in Estrid Ericson’s living room at Strandvägen 5 in front of a Liljevalch sofa.

    Josef Frank

    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

  • Care instructions

    When cleaning stone surfaces such as porphyry, use a soft cloth dampened with water and green soap. Dry with a soft cloth. Remember that acids such as red wine and lemon can stain the stone. This applies to both polished and matt marble. If acid is spilled, be sure to wipe the surface directly.

    The legs of the table are lacquered and should never be polished. Avoid contact with water as it can stain.
