Josef Hoffmann
Designed 1911

Mirror-polished brass
Removable candle insert
D. 4⅜ x H. 6¾ in.

Architect Josef Hoffmann (1870-1956) was one of the co-founders of the Wiener  Werkstätte, a design collective between artists and craftsmen founded in 1903. Hoffmann created objects in every medium and showed a particular affinity for metalwork.

This bell-shaped candlestick from 1911 shows Hoffmann at the height of his artistic powers. The absence of surface ornamentation draws attention to its pure, geometric forms, which are a hallmark of modern design.  

Meticulously modeled from brass and hand-polished by superior craftsmen, our re-creation is left unlaquered to promote the graceful patina of the original.
