Josef Frank at the American Swedish Institute

“The Enduring Designs of Josef Frank” is on exhibit at the American Swedish Institute, combining textiles and furnishings designed by Josef Frank. Frank was born in Austria, and is considered a leading pioneer of Swedish Modern design, and many of Frank’s timeless textile designs and furnishings remain in production today. Frank (who was Jewish) and his Swedish wife to moved to Stockholm in 1933, and then to New York City. After the war, the Franks returned to Stockholm where he produced further new furniture designs.

Another great chair!

I love the drawers in this chest, the variety of shapes and handles.

This exhibit is going to be at the American Swedish Institute until July 8th.
