A major retrospective exhibition devoted to the Wiener Werkstätte (Vienna Workshops), an artists’ and craftsmen's collective that existed in Vienna from 1903 until 1932. More than 200 objects have been selected for the presentation.
This show surveys the entirety of the firm’s extensive output in a variety of media, including ceramics, drawings, fashion, furniture, glass, graphic design, jewelry, metalwork, textiles, and wallpaper. Special highlights of the show will include iconic examples of furniture by Josef Hoffmann and Koloman Moser, which will be complemented by rare and often unique works crafted in silver, gold, and semiprecious stones that convey the Wiener Werkstätte’s luxurious aesthetic.
