Inspired by the Wiener Werkstaette…
Through its founder, Josef Hoffmann, the Oesterreichische Werkstaetten brand is closely linked to the Wiener Werkstaette (Vienna Workshop) and continues the Viennese tradition that began in 1912.
As well as offering products inspired by Jugendstil, the Wiener Werkstaette, Josef Hoffmann and Gustav Klimt, the brand focuses on premium-quality, regional craftsmanship. You will also find items inspired by the Austrian New Design concept in the range of our art nouveau online shop. Customers from all over the world love products from Oesterreichische Werkstaetten, which also make perfect gifts.
The contemporary design idiom
The contemporary design idiom is different from that of the founding generation. Many objects have a more clear-cut, minimalist appearance than those in the time of Josef Hoffmann. However, there are other items where the shape has been only slightly changed or updated, still preserving the timeless design.
Without a doubt, the basic concept of applying artistic design to all areas of life lives on. The aim has always been to combine perfect functionality with the highest aesthetic standards. That is why the motto of Oesterreichische Werkstaetten is: FORM AND FUNCTION!
Our quality guarantee
