Architects Mikael Bergquist and Olof Michrélsens take on Josef Franks Boudoir.

Started of this morning by having breakfast at Svenskt Tenn and checking out their new exhibition "As if by chance". The quote comes from Josef Frank and gives an understanding of what he wanted to say about his philosophy "Accidentism". Josef Frank wrote in his book with the same name "...we should shape our surroundings as if they had arisen by chance". A philosophy that makes a lot of sense when viewing decor and furnishing that was composed by Josef Frank and Svenskt Tenn founder Estrid Ericsson. Don´t be afraid to mix old with new, colors with patterns and furnitures from various eras. This philosophy is still today very much the essence of and can be found at the establishment and store Svenskt Tenn in Stockholm. The exhibition shows from 9th of February - 29th of March, don´t miss out!

What is rarely mentioned and often forgotten is what a talented architect Josef Frank was. Hi created a collection of beautiful houses, most of them early in his career when still living in Austria. One could only hope that some developer would take on the challenge and build from Josef Franks drawings...
