WONDERFUL PATTERNS FOR TEXTILES BY JOSEF FRANK

Josef Frank (born in 1885 in the town of Baden near Vienna) is not only one of the most important Austrian architects of the 20th century, but also, with his designs for textiles and furniture, one of the modernist designers whose influence continues to be felt in international design today. As a central representative of the “second Viennese Modernism,” in 1933 Frank saw no choice but to leave Austria in light of the mounting anti-Semitism and emigrated to Sweden, where - apart from a period spent living and working in the United States between 1939 and 194 - he continued to live up until his death in 1967.
