Svenskt Tenn Academy

Svenskt Tenn Academy

In conjunction with Svenskt Tenn’s first centenary, we are seizing the opportunity to delve into the company’s rich history. Throughout the year, there will be a chance to enroll in the Svenskt Tenn Academy – a series of four lectures and panel discussions exploring the company's history and evolution.

A century has passed since the founding of Svenskt Tenn. From timeless pewter designs under the guidance of founder Estrid Ericson to the remarkable collaboration with Austrian architect and designer Josef Frank that spanned for more than three decades. 100 years of characteristic interior design, patterns, furniture, and textiles, along with numerous collaborations with some of the most skilled craftsmen and designers of our time.

In this lecture series, we invite you to join inspiring talks and engaging discussions with representatives from Svenskt Tenn and external experts. Together, we will delve into the fearless aesthete Estrid Ericson and her resolute start: her move to Stockholm, and how it all began with a small pewter workshop on Smålandsgatan in Stockholm. We will get to know Josef Frank, sometimes described as an ‘accidental designer’, and how the legacy they both left behind is preserved through an unwavering focus on craftsmanship, quality, and sustainability.

Svenskt Tenn Academy

Estrid Ericson – The Fearless Aesthete

The inaugural session of the Svenskt Tenn Academy focuses on Estrid Ericson's initial years as an entrepreneur – a visionary ahead of her time. We discover the story of how the drawings teacher from Hjo founded what would become one of Stockholm’s most elegant interior design stores. We get to follow her work, drive, and entrepreneurship from the move to Stockholm, through her employment at Svensk Hemslöjd (“Swedish Handicrafts”) and Vackrare Vardagsvara (“More Beautiful Everyday Things”), to the establishment of Svenskt Tenn. We find out how she very early on distinguished herself by connecting with some of the most skilled designers of the time and by showcasing the designs of Svenskt Tenn internationally. We will also delve into the contemporary society of the time, exploring the 1920s art scene in Sweden and the challenges that Estrid Ericson faced.

Please note that the event will be held in Swedish.

Guided Tours & Presentations

Book a guided tour or a presentation and learn more about Estrid Ericson, Josef Frank and Svenskt Tenn's Interior Philosophy.

Svenskt Tenn has a long and interesting history. The company was founded in 1924 by art teacher Estrid Ericson, who recruited Josef Frank to the company ten years later. Together they created the elegant and boldly patterned interior design style that continues to pervade Svenskt Tenn’s range to this day.

We are currently unable to book guided tours or presentations at the store but hope to resume this service in the autumn of 2023. In the meantime, you can always contact our staff for more information about Svenskt Tenn’s history and contemporary collaborations. Please contact info@svenskttenn.se to learn more.
