Svenskt Tenn - Swedish Tin

Svenskt Tenn was founded in 1924 by designer and drawing teacher Estrid Ericson (1894-1981). In 1934, she began her lifelong collaboration with Josef Frank, already a well-known architect, urban planner and designer, who had recently left Austria to take up residence in Sweden.

Together, the two laid the foundations for the interior design philosophy that Svenskt Tenn has since come to represent, combining Estrid Ericson’s artistic talent and entrepreneurial spirit with Josef Frank’s inspired and timeless designs to form what was soon to become a highly successful concept. Today Svenskt Tenn is owned by the Kjell and Märta Beijer Foundation.
