In 1903 the architect and designer Josef Hoffmann and the multimedia artist Koloman Moser founded the Wiener Werkstätte with the banker Fritz Wärndorfer. The goal was to modernize the artist's trade from the bottom up and turn all aspects of everyday life into works of art. The artists collaborated closely with the Vienna Secession and the Vienna School of Arts and Crafts (later renamed as the University of Applied Arts). In addition to Hoffmann and Moser, the designer team of the Wiener Werkstätte also included such important artists as Carl Otto Czeschka, Dagobert Peche, Franz von Zülow, Anton Faistauer and Oskar Kokoschka.
