TAKE ME BACK Tuesday - JOSEF FRANK
TAKE ME BACK Tuesday - Josef Frank - the amount or talent in various realms one can possess amazes me on a daily basis. Josef Frank (1885-1967) was an "Austrian-born architect, artist, and designer who adopted Swedish citizenship in the latter half of his life. Together with Oskar Strand, he created the Vienna School of Architecture, and its concept of Modern houses, housing and interiors." To go from fabulous textile design to amazing furniture design and architecture on top of that is so inspiring to me. His textiles are still extremely popular today (see link below for examples), and very modern and "on trend" for this day and age. Wow, a man that was born in 1885, on trend in the year 2017! I can pick his designs out in a crowd which is something any designer strives for. His whimsy and color palettes are what makes his style stand out to me; you may even recognize some of his designs!
