Felice Rix-Ueno studied with Josef Hoffmann, a co-founder of the Wiener Werkstätte (1903–1932). Inspired by the Japanese design language, she developed her own style, which was expressed in particularly imaginative fabric and wallpaper patterns, fashion and home accessories as well as wall paintings.

After her marriage to the Japanese architect Isaburo Ueno, she moved to Japan in 1926. Collaborative works were created there that received a lot of attention, such as the Star Bar in Kyoto, which was shown in the famous Modern Architecture exhibition at New York's MoMa in 1932.

Felice Rix-Ueno, who was already prominently featured in the successful MAK exhibition The Women of the Wiener Werkstätte , is the first to receive a substantial monographic treatment outside of Japan with this catalogue.
