A new retrospective featuring works by late Austrian artist and architect Josef Frank is now open at the Austrian Museum of Applied Arts/Contemporary Art (MAK). The man, who The New York Times calls the “anti-design designer,” was known for his eclectic style, which doesn’t align with any design movement.
The aim of “Josef Frank: Against Design” is to establish frank as “the great humanist in modern architecture and design,” according to MAK director Christoph Thun-Hohenstein . The exhibition features hundreds of works by Frank, including furniture, paintings of unrealized houses, textiles, architectural models, and three staircases which until now had never been built.
The exhibition runs through April 3.
