Art History

The Wiener Werksttte, or Viennese Workshops, were founded by designers Josef Hoffmann and Koloman Moser in 1903, amid the excitement and vitality of turn-of- the- century Vienna. Their goal was to make work by fine craftsmen equivalent to that of fine artists. The Wiener Werksttte promoted progressive designs based on meticulous proportions and restrained detail, and executed objects with refined handiwork. More than a hundred artisans were employed by the Wiener Werksttte in the early twentieth century, producing such products as tableware in glass and metal, ceramics, leather goods, textiles, furniture, jewelry, and graphic designs.
