Presented by Cindi Strauss, curator of decorative arts and design, MFAH
Vienna at the turn of the 20th century was an incubator for progressive design. As one of the leaders of the design revolution, Koloman Moser and his colleagues Josef Hoffmann, Dagobert Pesce, Josef Maria Olbrich, and others developed a new Viennese modernism that remains influential today. Surveying their work for the Vienna Secession, Wiener Werkstatte, and private commissions as well as their collaborations with industry, this lecture provides an overview of this dynamic period in design history, which can be seen in the exhibition Koloman Moser: Designing Modern Vienna, 1897–1907.
