JOSEF KRANK (1885-1967) 
Austrian architect, designer, and theorist, he became an early advocate for modernist principles alongside contemporaries such as Le Corbusier and Walter Gropius. By the beginning of the 1920s, however, he began to question modernism’s growing programmatic streak, arguing instead that pluralism, not uniformity, most characterized life in the machine age. In 1933, he fled the Nazi regime, relocating permanently to Sweden, and work as chief designer for the Stockholm-based furnishings firm Svenskt Tenn for more than thirty years.
