About this Item

Title:The Glass of Architects : Vienna 1900 - 1937 Author: Franz, Rainald (ed) Price: $95.00 = 60,00.- euro ISBN: 9788857231952 Description: Milano: Skira, 2016. 31cm., hardcover, 328pp. illus. Exhibiton held at San Giorgio Maggiore, Venezia. Italian text. Summary: The Glass of the Architects. Vienna 1900-1937 is the second exhibition dedicated to international developments in 20th-century glass, after Glass from Finland in the Bischofberger Collection. The exhibitions are part of the "Le Stanze del Vetro" project jointly run by the Fondazione Giorgio Cini and Pentagram Stiftung for the purpose of studying and promoting the art of glassmaking in the 20th and 21st centuries. Published in collaboration with the MAK Vienna and "Le Stanze del Vetro" on the occasion of the exhibition in Venice, the volume presents over 300 works from the collection of the MAK Austrian Museum of Applied Arts / Contemporary Art in Vienna and private collections. It focuses for the first time on the history of glassmaking in Austria from 1900 to 1937, a period spanning the last decades of the Austro-Hungarian Empire and the First Republic. In fact in the early 20th century a group of young architects, designers, and fine arts and architecture students developed a special interest in the process of glassmaking. Many of them were to win fame as leading figures in Viennese Modernism, such as Josef Hoffmann (1870-1956), Koloman Moser (1868-1918), Joseph Maria Olbrich (1867-1908), Leopold Bauer (1872-1938), Otto Prutscher (1880-1949), Oskar Strnad (1879-1935), Oswald Haerdtl (1899-1959) and Adolf Loos (1870-1933). They paved the way to the first pioneering developments in 20th-century glass production as they worked with the furnaces in order to gain a thorough understanding of the material. The collaboration between architects and designers and the introduction of their innovations to production created the style of Viennese Glass, found in new projects such as the Wiener Werkstätte or the Austrian Werkbund.

About this title


Pubblicato in collaborazione con il MAK Vienna e "Le stanze del vetro" in occasione dell'esposizione veneziana, il volume presenta oltre 300 opere provenienti dalla collezione del MAK Austrian Museum of Applied Arts. Contemporary Art di Vienna e da collezioni private e mette a fuoco per la prima volta, la storia della lavorazione del vetro in Austria tra il 1900 e il 1937: un periodo compreso tra gli ultimi decenni dell'Impero Austro-Ungarico e la Prima Repubblica. A cavallo del 1900, un gruppo di giovani architetti e designer, allievi delle accademie e delle scuole di architettura, svilupparono infatti uno speciale interesse per la lavorazione del vetro. Protagonisti del Modernismo Viennese, come Josef Hoffmann (1870-1956), Koloman Moser (1868-1918), Joseph Maria Olbrich (1867-1908), Leopold Bauer (1872-1938), Otto Prutscher (1880-1949), Oskar Strnad (1879-1935), Oswald Haerdtl (1899-1959) e Adolf Loos (1870-1933), oggi famosi in tutto il mondo, aprirono la strada ai primi pioneristici sviluppi nella produzione vetraria, lavorando vicino alle fornaci con l'obiettivo di comprenderne a fondo il materiale. La collaborazione tra architetti e designer e l'integrazione di queste innovazioni nella produzione, crearono lo stile del Vetro Viennese, che venne presentato all'interno di nuovi progetti come la "Wiener Werkstätte" o il "Werkbund".
