Only some slight traces of wear.  Josef Hoffmann (1870-1956) Josef Hoffmann was the son of intellectual, supportive parents who ensured he received the best possible education at the State Industrial School in Brno and later at the Academy for Fine Arts in Vienna under Otto Wagner. It was here, he got to know Joseph Maria Olbrich with whom he founded the Vienna Secession in 1897 that he already left again in 1905. He worked as a teacher at the arts college from 1899. In 1903 he founded the Vienna Workshop with Fritz Warndorfer and Koloman Moser. He co-founded the German Werkbund and, in 1912, the Austrian Werkbund. He worked as a designer and architect and his designs are still extremely popular. Jakob & Josef Kohn Jacob Kohn (1791–1866) founded his company together with his son Josef (1814–1884) in 1849. They produced wooden components and soon began producing bentwood. They opened production centers in Bohemia, Krakow and Russia and already in 1900 more than 6300 workers were busy producing more than 5500 pieces of furniture each day. Thanks to the cooperation with such renowned artists as Josef Hoffmann, Otto Wagner, Adolf Loos and Gustav Siegel, the company soon made a name for itself as the producer of fashionable and modern furniture. They received many awards, gold medals and even medals from Austria, Spain, Belgium and Russia. The company merged with the Mundus AG in 1914 that also produced for Thonet (Thonet-Kohn-Mundus). Pieces of furniture by Kohn can today be seen in the Museum of Modern Art in New York, in the Musée d’Orsay in Paris as well as in the Museum for applied art, the MAK Vienna.
