Web Description: 
Viennese architect and designer Josef Hoffmann (Austrian, 1870-1956) belonged to the avant-garde group of Austrian artists known as the Vienna Sezession, and he founded the Wiener Werkstätte (Viennese Workshops) in 1903. Wiener Werkstätte artists produced all kinds of decorative arts, from jewelry to complete room decorations. The Kabarett Fledermaus (Bat Café) in Vienna, designed by Hoffmann and others in 1907, was one of the Wiener Werkstätte's most recognized interiors. In glass, Hoffmann's designs are characterized by simple, full forms and spare, usually geometric, decoration.
