Published to accompany the exhibition of the same name held at Neue Galerie New York, 26th October 2017-29th January 2018.

The Wiener Werkstatte, founded by Josef Hoffmann, Koloman Moser, and Fritz Waerndorfer, was an artists' and craftsmen's collective that existed in Vienna from 1903 until 1932.

The artists' goal was to bring high-quality design and craft into all areas of life and to elevate everyday objects into pieces of art.

During that time, the collective produced items in a variety of media including ceramics, furniture, glass, jewelry, metalwork, and textiles.

The Wiener Werkstatte style influenced generations of architects from Bauhaus to Art Deco.

This book features the work of well-known Wiener Werkstatte members such as Josef Hoffmann, Koloman Moser, and Dagobert Peche along with lesser known designers such as Gudrun Baudisch, Carl Otto Czeschka, and Ugo Zovetti.

It also includes in-depth essays that explore the Wiener Werkstatte's long history and legacy.
