Steel Bench by Josef Hoffmann

Steel Bench by Josef Hoffmann

Note to self: Did I add Phillips de Pury and Company’s site to my list of fame? No … Done now. Reason is an important upcoming auction in NYC of Wiener Werkstatte design, The period that attracted me to chairs in the first place, as many of the designers of that era worked for Thonet as well.


Bench, ca. 1906
