St. Michael im Lungau 1887 – 1923 Vienna
Peche counts as one of the most important Austrian artists of the 20th century. Trained as an architect with König and Ferstl, he designed complete interiors, fabrics (e.g. for Backhausen), wallpapers and furniture. In 1915, he joined the Wiener Werkstätte where he was able to develop his strong leaning towards very imaginative shapes and forms. He produced numerous silver objects with charming designs, jewellery and embroidery. Peche's very personal and extremely decorative style has been an influence on the entire Austrian and German world of arts and crafts through the years.
