Paul Frankl was an Austrian designer, furniture maker, architect and writer. Some of Frankl’s designs had distinctive Asian influences, inspired by his interest in Chinese and Japanese arts. In the 1940s he was one of the first designers to utilize free-form and biomorphic shapes. He experimented with bamboos and hardwood. Throughout the 1940s and 50s Frankl designed lines of wicker, cane, bamboo and rattan furniture for both indoor and outdoor use.
