The Viennese architect and ‘allround designer’ Josef Hoffmann (1870–1956) is much more than just the founder of the Wiener Werkstätte. This book offers a wide-ranging look at his oeuvre, which took shape over no less than sixty years.
The timeless beauty of Hoffmann’s creations demonstrates his importance not just as a historical figure, but as a source of inspiration for several generations.
Richly illustrated with furniture, objects, designs, textiles, photos, drawings and documents. Special attention is paid to his creative method and his misunderstood use of color.
