This year we celebrate the Carl von Linnaeus year in Sweden. Due to this Svenskt Tenn in Stockholm is re-launching the Flora chest of drawers by Josef Frank. The updated version called Flora Chest of Drawers Carl von Linnaeus is decorated with reproductions of painting that actually hanged on the walls in the Carl Linnaeus home. The production is limited (I wrote about another limited product earlier today) to 50 pieces. Flora Chest of Drawers Carl von Linnaeus number one is reserved for the His Majesty the King of Sweden and number two will be donated to Her Majesty Queen Elisabeth II of Great Britain at the Chelsea Flower Show in May 2007. The original Flora chest of drawers was design 1951 and produced until the beginning of the 1970’s in very few editions and has in recent years been sold for record prices at contemporary design auctions.
If you have put aside some 12000 Euro, the new Flora Chest of Drawers Carl von Linnaeus can be yours.
