Josef Hoffmann was an Austrian architect and designer. He was among the founders of Vienna Secession and co-establisher of the Wiener Werkstätte. Josef Hoffmann designed a number of significant works of art in the 1920s. These are still considered to be pioneering the discipline of object-design until today. This Jugenstil design direction was developed by Hoffman as co-founder and influencer of the Vienna Wiener Werkstatte collective. He was one of the founding members, with Gustav Klimt, of an association of revolutionary artists and architects, the Vienna Secession.
