American Swedish Historical Museum
Austrian-born designer and architect Josef Frank (1885–1967) was a leading pioneer of Swedish Modern design, and many of Frank’s timeless textile designs and furnishings remain in production today. Unlike the severe approach to modernism taken by many of his contemporaries, Frank emphasized comfort and informality, producing fanciful designs inspired by nature. Frank’s lavish use of bright, bold colors and floral patterns quickly became popular with a host of Swedish designers and clientele. Stop by the American Swedish Historical Museum to experience his designs today! Included in general admission. (Museum closed on Mondays).
