Joseph Frank/ Cabinet of Curiosities

During Design Miami/ Basel this past June, Stockholm-based gallery Jackson’s exhibited a unique set of cabinets designed by twentieth-century architect-designer Josef Frank. Produced in 1958 by Swedish interiors company Svensk Tenn for a private residence in São Paulo, these objects are a perfect embodiment of Frank’s approach to design. While throughout his long career Frank upheld a principled and progressive design philosophy that kept modern human needs at the forefront, he disparaged the austere environments and puritanical aesthetics endorsed by modernists of his day.
