Ask about this object

In 1904, Otto Prutscher designed a complete interior for the ladies’ drawing room of the Wiener Mode [Vienna fashion] exhibition. The unusual form of the legs of the table, stool, bench and fauteuil correspond to the front legs of our four armchairs. Prutscher repeatedly used a bottom brace as a stabilising element for the legs – as did a number of Josef Hoffmann’s other students. Thus it is very likely that Prutscher was the designer of this Secessionist armchair.
