In the sculptural lighting collection Pleated for Frank, Folkform interprets Josef Frank’s classic pattern world with the help of handcrafted pleating techniques. The collection has been designed exclusively for Svenskt Tenn 2023 and consists of two table lamps and a series of lampshades that can be used with selected light fixtures by Josef Frank. His well-known prints, Aristidia (1920s), Brazil (1940s) and Poisons (1940s), have been used together with Svenskt Tenn’s own linens, for the collection.
Folkform has made it a part of their brand to work with small-scale Swedish producers. Their aim is to highlight places, cultural heritage and the handycraft behind each product, as an alternative to anonymous mass production.
