  • Design

    Mixing different material was typical for Josef Frank’s designs. In Sideboard 2137 the white lacquered frame meets the tabletop and fittings in walnut and Josef Frank’s typical acorn shaped hinges in brass. He drew these types of sideboards during his time at the firm Haus und Garten in Vienna in the 1920s. Similar sideboards are for instance represented in Haus Beer in Vienna, which he designed. A version of the sideboard was commissioned for an interior to Consul General Svedelius’s home in Brazil. Irregular front placement to create an exciting shape. Josef Frank designed the sideboard 2137 during the first half of the 1950s.

    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
