The colorful circular design of our watch is based on a lustrous printed silk textile from the Wiener Werkstätte (Viennese Workshops) in the Museum’s collection. The textile division at the designers’ cooperative was begun in 1905, and for nearly thirty years it produced refined and graphically elegant designs, distinctive in their use of flat shapes and bold colors. The workshops employed more than a hundred artisans active across the spectrum of the decorative arts, from jewelry and furniture to graphic design.
