Design Discoveries

Today Google celebrated the 125th anniversary of the birth of designer Josef Frank by posting a doodle based on his textile designs. Although I had heard of Josef Frank before, I was not really familiar with his work. Since I quite liked the Google doodle, I searched for more of his work and was really pleased with what I found.

I found a bunch of his work represented on the website for the Swedish design store Svenskt Tenn. I really love his use of color and form, and his floral prints are amazing. I have already pinched a number of his designs to use as desktop wallpaper on my computer!

Here are some of my favorite Josef Frank designs.
