Villas designed by Josef Frank

Some of Falsterbo's most famous villas: Villa Claesson, Carlsten, Seth, Låftman and Wehtje were all drawn between 1924 and 1936 by the Austrian architect and designer Josef Frank, born 1885. Frank himself, who emigrated to Sweden in 1934 with his Swedish wife, lived in a summer house on Storgatan in Falsterbo.

It was Josef Frank who coined the phrase "accidentism", which referred to a new and more profound design.

The same year as Frank came to Sweden, he became a co-worker at Swedish Tenn. Soon he began to oppose the rigid ideals of modernism that dominated the Swedish Tenn's range and instead developed his very own style where humanity, comfort, cosiness, elegance, color and aesthetics were at the center.

Franks sophisticated and original furniture quickly came to shake off the modernist style, and Swedish Tenn went from strict functionalism to introduction of Josef Frank's generous and boundless style. During his time at Swedish Tenn, Frank cooperated with the company's founder; Estrid Ericson. Their common sense of timeless quality as well as Eastern art and architecture resulted in a very successful companionship that lasted for 33 years, until Joseph Frank's death in 1967.
