Illustrated with color photographs of Hoffmann’s masterpieces -on their own and as parts of interiors- this monograph focuses on significant aspects of Hoffmann’s career: his early years as a member of the Secessionist Movement and founder of the Vienna Workshops, his role in the intellectual rebellion that took place in Austria; and his progression toward a Modernist ethic. It takes readers through four dazzling interiors designed by Hoffmann and furnished with his signature pieces, including furniture, wall and floor coverings, textiles, lighting, ceramics, glassware and metalwork.
