Architect Josef Hoffmann

Josef Hoffmann was an Austrian designer, architect, founder of the Vienna Secession and creator of jaw dropping marbleized jewelry that was unique and unmatched. His vintage brooches are works of art, encrusted with fabulous gems and metal. Hoffmann’s geometric forms in furniture, stone, glass and other media inspire us daily.

 
 
 

 
 

 



 
 
 
 

“ I dream of a new age of curiosity. We have the technical means for it; the desire is there; the things to be known are infinite; the people who can employ themselves at this task exist. Why do we suffer? From too little: from channels that are too narrow, skimpy, quasi-monopolistic, insufficient. There is no point in adopting a quasi- protectionist attitude, to prevent 'bad' information from invading and suffocating the 'good'. Rather, we must simply multiply the paths and the possibilities of comings and goings."

Philosopher Michel Foucault
