Vienna Secession Decorative Objects

VIENNA SECESSION STYLE & WIENER WERKSTÄTTE

At the turn of the 20th century, Gustav Klimt, Josef Hoffmann and several of their peers separated from the predominant Association of Austrian Artists to form a new professional union, the Vienna Secession.

The artists’ intent to break free from classical traditions in fine art evolved to encompass applied arts and interior design as well: In 1903, Hoffmann and Koloman Moser founded the Wiener Werkstätte, or "Viennese Workshop," to produce progressive furniture, ceramics, glass and textiles.

This talented collective of Austrian artists, architects and designers most famously created works in the Jugendstil style — the German branch of Western Europe's popular Art Nouveau. Jugendstil is associated with dynamic, rhythmic forms and undulating lines.

On 1stDibs, discover the sophisticated Vienna Secession furniture, art and decorative objects — ranging from watercolor paintings and prints to serveware and seating — that transformed Austria over one hundred years ago and maintain timeless appeal today.
