About Josef Hoffmann :
Josef Hoffmann - 1870 - 1956 - was in his time a very well known and esteemed Austrian Designer and Architecte.
Early on, his works represent the tangent between Art Nouveau and Art Déco though his later works mark him as an important precursor of the Modern Mouvement.
As Co-Founder of the Austrian Werkbund in 1903 and also as the Co-Founder of the German Werkbund in 1907, the style of his works and his way of avant-garde thinking influenced a generation of artists of the "New Tradion" internationnaly.
One of his first works as a domestic designer was in 1910 the iconic Cubic Armchair with its strict geometrical lines and quadratic theme which made it through the century.
This armchair was presented at the International Exhibition, held in Buenos Aires in 1910.
Some of his domestic works like the "Seating Machine" Armchair, Lamps, Silver, Glaces and an entire Tea-Set are still to be seen today at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
