On the trail of Wiener Werkstätte designs
Woka Lamps Vienna produces exclusive lighting based on contemporary Wiener Werkstätte and Jugendstil designs. Many of the high-quality reproductions can be seen in the city center showrooms and on the Woka website. Josef Hoffmann's crystal chandelier for the Palais Stoclet in Brussels, Otto Wagner's outdoor lighting for Vienna's Stadtbahn commuter railway and Adolf Loos' designs for gentlemen's outfitters Knize are among the highlights. The lights are made exclusively by hand and, in some cases, using original tools. Each comes with a certificate of authenticity.
Now in its sixth generation, legendary Viennese glass and lighting producer Lobmeyr is a byword for time-honored, quality manufacturing. The company (est. 1823) also has a long-standing tradition of working with leading designers to produce various timeless classics such as the B series drinking glasses which are manufactured according to the original sketches by key Wiener Werkstätte creative Josef Hoffmann.
There are several Josef Hoffmann designs in the Porzellanmanufaktur Augarten portfolio to this day. Introduced in 1929, his Melonenservice (a striking striped mocha set) has been in production ever since its introduction in 1929 - as has his Atlantis tea service (1930).
The Vienna Silver Factory also has a rich heritage of the Wiener Werkstätte. The present-day manufactory has its roots in one of the oldest Austrian handicraft businesses and was an important partner to the Wiener Werkstätte around 1900. Flatware services and dishes to original designs by Josef Hoffman are available here, as are candlesticks and coffee and tea services by Otto Prutscher, including the famous Pumpkin service.
