Stockholm prep: Josef Frank

Detail of above

I'm going to Stockholm next month (i know lucky) so am making a list of design shops to visit.
Top o list is Svenskt Tenn: Home of Josef Frank textiles.
I love Frank's incredibly vibrant textiles which explode in a riot of big blooming flowers + fantastical birds. Methinks it would be hard to feel sad while sitting on one of his chairs. He sounds like a great guy: described as a designer who was fueled by curiosity and a roaming imagination - who was able to move from textiles, architecture, furniture design, glassware and lighting with ease. wow.
