Item description for Josef Hoffman: Interiors, 1902-1913 by Christian Will-doerring...

Illustrated with color photographs of Hoffmann's masterpieces---on their own and as parts of interiors---this monograph focuses on significant aspects of Hoffmann's career: his early years as a member of the Secessionist Movement and founder of the Vienna Workshops, his role in the intellectual rebellion that took place in Austria; and his progression toward a Modernist ethic. It takes readers through four dazzling interiors designed by Hoffmann and furnished with his signature pieces, including furniture, wall and floor coverings, textiles, lighting, ceramics, glassware and metalwork. The overall effect of these rooms is to be transported to a world in which form marries function, and simplicity and refinement reign supreme.

Reviews - What do customers think about Josef Hoffman: Interiors, 1902-1913?

An Extremely Flawed Endeavor   Jan 14, 2007
Josef Hoffmann was one of the greatest architects and designers of the twentieth century, perhaps the finest furniture designer, and certainly one of the most significant figures in decorative arts.
Anyone seriously interested in Hoffmann should add this book to their library. It contains numerous vintage photographs and a highly informed text.
However, be forewarned. It is described as having color photographs of Hoffmann's interiors. This, like the majority of significant art books, is the catalogue for an extraordinary exhibition at the Neue Galerie in New York. In Ronald Lauder's preface he states, "Here is the unique opportunity to view magnificent interiors with all the color and sense of fantasy that Josef Hoffmann gave them." The absolute and glorious centerpiece of the exhibition is the reconstruction of four Hoffmann interiors. Furniture, wallpaper, carpets, curtains, etc; and they are magnificent. In one of the most brainless publishing endeavors imaginable, these interiors--in spite of the description and Lauder's remarks--are not in the book. Nor is the entire gallery of Hoffmann's watercolor designs for fabrics, carpets, and wallpapers.
One must wonder how the museum and Taschen allowed this great opportunity to slip through their fingers. Taschen, Lauder, and the Neue Galerie owes everyone that purchases this book/catalogue an apology.
If you would like to see the interiors they failed to include check the review in SLATE. You will immediately see what a bungled job this is.
