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. (kre)
