The Wiener Werkstätte, or the Vienna Workshop, thrived from 1903 to 1932 as an artists’ cooperative, creating everyday objects with an emphasis on quality design. Taking inspiration from the Vienna Secession, the group was founded by architect Josef Hoffmann, designer and painter Koloman Moser, and patron Fritz Waerndorfer. It grew into a community of artisans who designed and produced furniture, textiles, apparel, porcelain, glass, postcards, and other useful but highly decorative objects for Vienna’s well-to-do. These captivating designs by Felice Rix-Ueno, a member of the workshop, are prime examples of the group’s aesthetic.
