First edition. Quarto. 224 pp; illustrated throughout mostly in b/w. Hardcover with dustjacket. Published in conjunction with the Josef Hoffmann exhibition at the Neue Gallerie in NYC from November 2, 2006 to February 26, 2007. 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.
