Hans Weiss was a Viennese Jewish émigrée to New York in the late 1930's. His work, both residential and commercial is extensively documented in the Gottscho-Schleisner photographic archives in the Library of Congress under his own name and, Weiss & Basser, the name of his partnership with fellow emigree, Wilheim Basser. Basser passed away in 1958 so for this particular interior design project undertaken in 1960 he was working on his own. It is likely that the carpentry and cabinet makers may have been fellow Austrian refugees, Hans Herschan and Erich Nasch of New York, both relatives of Basser. Weiss and Basser also frequently had Harvey Probber's workshop build their designs. It is not known when Hans Weiss passed away but we do at least know that he was born in 1900 and was still active as late as 1970 when he updated the grand living room of this particular apartment in The Normandy at 140 Riverside Drive, between 86th and 87th Streets, on the Upper West Side of Manhattan in New York City. Hans Weiss and his wife, Ethel, also happened to live in the same building. You can view photos of their own apartment, designed of course by Hans, in the Gottscho-Schleisner photographic archives.
