About the DesignerJosef Hoffmann
Austria (1870 - )
Prominent member of the Viennese Secession, he was born in Pirnitz-M?hren in 1870. At the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna, he studied under Karl Hasenauer and Otto Wagner and until 1937 he held a course in architecture at the Kunstgewerbeschule of the ?sterreichisches Museum f?r Kunst und Industrie. In 1903, together with Kolo Moser he founded the Wiener Werkst?tte. He developed his simple geometric shapes starting from the curvilinear language of the European Art Nouveau. One of his most important works was the Stoclet Palace in Brussels (1905-1911). He developed the principles of the total work of art. He died in 1956.
Known for being the original developer of the "principles of the total work of art," Josef Hoffmann would incorporate these ideals into original historic Alessi designs of 1906 such as the Rundes Modell Flatware. Presented for the first time at "The Laid Table" exhibit in Wienn (Vienna), this cutlery was definitely ahead of its time with its truly modern shape and design. Originally handmade in silver between 1910 and 1912, today this set is reproduced by Alessi in polished 18/10 stainless steel for durability and practicality. The contemporary form of the "Rundes Modell" Dinner Knife reflects Hoffmann's search for ultimate functionality combined with extreme elegance utilizing the common materials and processes of the World War era.
