Sweden Josef Frank for Svenskt Tenn Nippon 315 Linen (designed in)

During his time as a visiting professor in New York, Josef Frank designed two map patterns, of which one received the name Dixieland, a nickname for the American south. The pattern depicts the Atlantic Ocean and its surrounding continents. Frank portrays Africa as a pair of huge sunflowers and the vast region of the Amazons as watermelons. The oceans swell up onto white sandy beaches. Dixieland was printed for the first time in connection with Svensk Tenn’s anniversary exhibition in 1974.

Svenskt Tenn’s textiles are well known for their design and colourful prints. Josef Frank designed about 200 prints for textiles, wallpaper and carpets.
