From Sweden with Love (and Whimsy)

by Breeze Giannasio in ,


If you're a DC local and you're sad to see the cherry blossom's fade, why not swing by the House of Sweden for their latest exhibit: The Enduring Designs of Josef Frank.  It's bound to be a pick me up as Frank's whimsy and joyfulness is present in all of his work.  A leading pioneer in Swedish modernism, Frank eschewed the radical minimalism of Bauhaus furniture in favor of curves and color, saying in a lecture, “No hard corners: humans are soft and shapes should be too.”

In other Josef Frank news, the talented Brittany Watson of the House that Lars Built just featured Josef Frank on her blog in tandem with guest-pinning for 1st Dibs.  Check out some of her lovingly curated gems from his vast ouvre.  Way to spread the love Brittany!
