  • Design

    Stool 647 was designed by Josef Frank in 1936 for an interior at the Millesgården house and studio. It works equally well as a coffee table seat as it does as a footstool.

    The stool is here upholstered with textile Vegetable Tree and the price includes fabric. Vegetable Tree is a variation of the Tree of Life theme that Josef Frank often used and playfully transformed into a vegetable tree. In this print, Josef Frank’s stylises shapes increase the colour intensity and blends nature with fantasy to spark wonder. Josef Frank designed the print while he was living in New York.

    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
