“We are thrilled to partner with the MAK and LE STANZE DEL VETRO to present this groundbreaking exhibition in the U.S.,” said Ruggiero. “We look forward to displaying objects from our own collection alongside the iconic works from the collections of the MAK and J. & L. Lobmeyr. While in Corning, the exhibition will also include select loans in other media from North American collections, complementing the glass on view and further shaping our visitors’ understanding of this important moment in Austrian design.”

 

The Glass of the Architects. Vienna 1900-1937
At the turn of the 20th century in Europe, the term architect was applied to those who designed building structures, as well as those who designed all aspects of interior decoration. As these designers sought to establish a modern style in Austria, they took inspiration from nature and their regional traditions, as well as from international artistic styles and movements. Glass was a prized material in which to express their ideas. They built upon existing traditions of glassmaking by leveraging the existing network of design and technical schools, and relying on manufacturers, retailers, and exhibitions to promote and disseminate their ideas on a global scale. Leaders in the development of modern Austrian design whose work will be on view in the exhibition include: Josef Hoffmann (1870–1956), Koloman Moser (1868–1918), Otto Prutscher (1880–1949), Dagobert Peche (1887–1923), Michael Powolny (1871–1954), Vally (Valerie) Wieselthier (1895– 1945), Oswald Haerdtl (1899–1959), and Adolf Loos (1870–1933).
