    Description

    This architectural vase represents a wonderful collection and museum piece, considering its rarity as well as its quality. The glass artwork was designed by Josef Hoffmann for the VIII. Exhibition of the Vienna Secession. This important event in art history was devoted not only to painting, but also to international arts and crafts. Josef Hoffmann’s strict geometric style was carried through from the design of the main hall of the Secession Exhibition, to the art objects themselves.

    Our exceptional Jugendstil glass was mould-blown and then free formed. The applied teardrop overlays were distorted into three columns — an extremely complex and elaborate glassblowing process requiring the highest level of craftsmanship.

    ARTIST

    Josef Hoffmann (Brtnice 1870 – 1956 Vienna), co-founder of the Viennese Secession and of the Wiener Werkstätte, was an extremely productive and versatile architect and designer. Throughout his career he experimented with various forms, techniques and materials. In his designs, he was striving for a strong reduction of the form to the essential and was a pioneer of geometric Jugendstil. This is how his characteristic geometric style was established. The scope of his designs ranges from buildings and entire interiors, following the concept of the “Gesamtkunstwerk” (total work of art), all the way to small details of everyday life. One of his most significant works is the Palais Stoclet in Brussels, a Gesamtkunstwerk which he executed for a wealthy entrepreneur between 1905 and 1911 in collaboration with, among others, Gustav Klimt and Koloman Moser.
