Swedish Design - Svenskt Tenn
Svenskt Tenn is one of the premiere Swedish interior design and furniture stores and is also one of Sweden's oldest design companies... 80+ years. They are especially well known for their beautiful textiles. The form designer Josef Frank is closely associated with the store. He emmigrated to Sweden in 1933, escaping Nazi oppression and worked at Svenskt Tenn until his death in 1967. The store is celebrating the fact that Frank would have been 125 years old this summer with an exhibition of his work. The exhibition runs from June 10th through August 15th, 2010.
Svenskt Tenn is located on Strandvägen 5 in the Östermalm neighborhood. The nearest subway stations are Östermalmstorg(red line) and Kungstädgården((blue line).
