About Josef Hoffmann: Architect, co-founder of the Wiener Werkstätte (Viennese Workshop) and groundbreaking furniture designer – Josef Hoffmann is recognised as a pioneer of the modern design movement that emerged in Europe in the late 19th century.

Born in Brünn (now Brno in the Czech Republic) in 1870, Josef Hoffmann studied at the State Crafts School and later the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna. Here, he studied with architect Otto Wagner and won the distinguished Prix de Rome in 1895. Alongside architect Joseph Maria Olbrich and artists Gustav Klimt and Koloman Moser, he founded the Vienna Secession – a group of architects, designers and artists who aimed to bring a progressive new breed of art to Viennese audiences that rejected the extravagant ornamentation of the day in favour of radical simplicity.

Hoffmann founded the Viennese Workshop in 1903 – a design cooperative that produced exquisitely crafted furniture and homewares. Here, he was a major designer and produced a large number of significant works that would go on to influence many styles, including Bauhaus and Art Deco.
