Wolfgang von Wersin

Designer

Wolfgang von Wersin (*1882 in Prague, †1976 in Bad Ischl) was a German architect and designer.

He studied painting and architecture in Prague and Munich and in 1906 began teaching at the Lehr- und Versuchs-Atelier für Angewandte und Freie Kunst in Munich and in 1912 working at the Deutsche Werkstätten, where he created designs for exhibitions, furniture, fabrics, wallpaper, and ceramics. He is best known for his models of the Nymphenburg porcelain factory, particularly for a 1928 set of tableware for the Munich magistrate, which were followed by the “Adonis”, “Helios”, and “Lotos” sets. He also designed porcelain for Rosenthal and Thomas. Von Wersin went on to teach at the art school of the City of Linz and became a co-founder of the Upper Austrian Werkbund.

In 1946, Wolfgang von Wersin became closely acquainted with Hans Harald Rath through the Upper Austrian Werkbund. In 1958, he designed Lobmeyr’s exhibit for Milan, the Wersin Service No.272 “Triennale”, which remains in great demand to this day. He also designed several other bowls and jars for the Lobmeyr collection.
