The Österreichische Werkstätten in Vienna
Although the design and products have changed in some regards, the identity of Österreichische Werkstätten is still based on the ideals of the founders.
Many of our products are today even more puristic and down-to-earth than they were in the time of Josef Hoffmann.
We continue to follow the principles of the founders (Josef Hoffmann and Koloman Moser, aided by financier Fritz Wärndorfer) and, above all, never lose sight of one of their most important mottos: amalgamating art and everyday life, breaking down the boundaries between applied and fine art, and offering objects for daily use that are produced in an elegant and tasteful form.
Committed to meeting the highest standards, we pay very close attention to only adding items with top-class quality, timeless design and a distinctly long life span to our collection.
Our good international reputation comes down to consistently high customer satisfaction. The shop on Kärntnerstraße alone sees around 30,000 customers every year.
