Josef Hoffmann Nesting Tables, Set of 4

The Austrian architect Josef Hoffmann was a central figure in the evolution of modern design, and a leader in an aesthetic movement born in Europe in the late 19th century that rejected florid, extravagant ornamentation in favor of a new emphasis on simplicity of line. As a founder of the turn-of-the-century Weiner Werkstatte (in English: the Viennese Workshops), a design co-op that produced superbly crafted furniture and housewares, Hoffmann was a pioneering practitioner of what would become a fundamental principle of modernism: that good design is a way of life.

This beautiful set of nesting tables, designed circa 1906 in Austria by Jacob & Josef Kohn, are made of beech wood.  The top is a stunning green glass. 

Condition: Each element exhibits surface wear along contact points, in keeping with normal use over time. Considering age, this example shows in excellent vintage condition and is structurally sound in use.

Dimensions: 24½ w × 18 d × 29¼ h in
