May 21 - October 2, 2016

In Millesgården’s major summer exhibition, the designer and artist Josef Frank (1885-1967) is placed in an art historical context.
The exhibition comprises four sections. In the large space of the Art Gallery, Josef Frank is presented as designer with focus on the fabrics.A large number of watercolours by Josef Frank, a previously unknown side of the designer’s creativity, are presented in the inner gallery and also in a new book. Anne’s House, featuring interior design by Swedish Tenn and Josef Frank, will be open and provide visitors with access to the rooms. Here, Frank’s interior design ideas will be presented in texts. The fourth section of the exhibition, on the Lower Terrace, are the summer flower beds and flower arrangements inspired by Josef Frank’s designs and paintings and created by landscape architect Ulf Nordfjell. The flower carpet is on display from the first week in June.
