The first exhibition of the work of Austrian-born designer and artist Josef Frank’s textiles in the UK is now showing at The Fashion and Textile Museum. Frank practised and taught architecture in Vienna in the 1920’s before fleeing the Nazi rise arriving in Sweden in 1933. It was here that he developed his colourful take on modernism. Together with collaborator Estrid Ericson, Frank defined what has come to be regarded as Swedish Modern, with the pair designing and producing furniture, glassware, lighting and interior design pieces.

At The Graphical Tree we can print directly to fabric, wood and wallpaper, all of which can be fashioned into unique home furnishings, one off furniture or home decoration. Our 3m wide direct to media printer gives us advanced latex printing capability perfectly suited for the job. The latex ink is dry as soon as it comes off the printer. There’s also no smell from latex inks, unlike the distinct odour you get using solvent inks.
