Synopsis: Founded 100 years ago in Vienna, the Wiener Werkstätte-"Vienna Workshops"-was an idealistic movement to unite the fine and applied arts with the goal of creating beautifully designed and crafted objects for every purpose. Begun by Josef Hoffmann and Koloman Moser, the movement eventually involved hundreds of artists and craftsmen working in architecture, furniture design, tableware, metalwork, ceramics and glass, books, posters, carpets, jewelry, fabrics, and haute couture, not to mention paintings and the traditional fine arts.
This heavily illustrated, compact-format book offers as complete a record as we are ever likely to see of the group's astonishingly creative work, from complex, integrated environments such as Hoffmann's Palais Stoclet in Brussels and Cabaret Fledermaus in Vienna to individual objects such as enameled-glass stemware by Otto Prutscher and vibrantly colored postcards by Oskar Kokoschka. Wiener Werkstätte provides a comprehensive overview of this fascinating movement, one of the high points of modern design history.
About the Author: Christian Brandstätter is the author of numerous books about Viennese art of the 20th century, and the leading publisher in the field. He lives in Vienna.
