Flower Jardiniere Bentwood Beech Stained Austrian Jugendstil designed by Josef Hoffmann circa 1902 manufactured by J & J Kohn

In his designs, Josef Hoffmann was striving to reduce form to the essential. The design of this jardiniere, which he created around 1902, also follows this postulate. The insertion of the grid as the only ornament is typical of this artistic period.

This jardiniere, produced by the then innovative bentwood furniture company Jacob & Josef Kohn, is made of bent and stained beech wood and still bears the company label underneath the basket.

The bentwood furniture of Jacob & Josef Kohn were among the most important furniture pieces of the Wiener Jugendstil. Through cooperation with some of the best designers of their time and a very high production standard, this manufacture was even managed to be known in the USA.
