Josef Hoffmann was an Austrian architect who began his career
in the late 19trh century. By the end of the 1800s Hoffmann had - together with
Gustav Klimt, Joseph Mari Olbrich and Koloman Moser - founded the Vienna
Secession. The Secessionists included many artists who would later achieve
great acclaim including Egon Schiele and Oskar Kokoschka.
Hoffmann himself was a prominent artist, his fields being
architecture and the design of consumer goods. Various of his designs are
exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, both
in New York City.
Hoffmann also made textile designs. Design 9297 was design by
him in 1913 but never manufactured. In fact, the name Design 9297 is what it was
assigned in the mill archive.
