New standard work on Josef Hoffmann

The book is the first to comprehensively document Josef Hoffmann's entire oeuvre. As a Wagner student, founding member of the Vienna Secession (1897), professor at the Vienna School of Applied Arts (1899–1936), co-founder of the Wiener Werkstätte (1903), the German Werkbund (1907) and the Austrian Werkbund (1912), he cultivated a modern model Ways of life based on a craft-based, artistically ambitious and creatively advanced building and product culture.

Over 40 illustrated essays by well-known experts on the most important buildings, interiors, exhibitions, decorative arts designs and products represent all areas of his large oeuvre. Generous photo series, a detailed biography and a comprehensive documentation section round off the book into a new standard work.

Edited by: Christoph Thun-Hohenstein, Christian Witt-Dörring, Rainald Franz and Matthias Boeckl
