    Curly birch, elm and padauk.

    Each cabinet is unique, and the wooden surface can vary from the picture.

    All Svenskt Tenn furniture bears a plaque proving that the furniture is genuine.

  • Design

    An exquisite balance between horizontal and vertical lines and a sharp contrast between light and dark. Josef Frank designed the cabinet in 1957 in three different types of wood: Masurian birch, elm and padouk. He often used veneers in cabinets and bureaus –materials that aimed to show what nature, rather than man, had to offer.

    Josef Frank advocated the importance of being able to distinguish the meeting between floor and wall in a room. He designed cabinets with high legs, furniture that add a sense of air and space in the interior, with the thought that the baseboard should always be visible under the cabinet. Today, Cabinet 2215 is manufactured at the Eriksson och Söner carpentry outside Nyköping in Sweden.

    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

    Svenskt Tenn’s furniture is made from wood that is varnished or coated. Clean with a soft cloth dampened with mild dish detergent or soapy water. Dry with a soft cloth. Do not expose the furniture to prolonged humidity or direct heat or use polish, oil or abrasive cleaners on the furniture.

    Avoid placing vases, books, placemats and the like, on the cabinet top when the furniture is new, as colour variations can occur on the surface. Also avoid exposing the furniture to large changes in temperature and humidity.

    Contact a furniture restorer if the coating or wood gets damaged, as it can get worse if not tended to.
