Unfortunately not on display at the moment
In the period around 1910, the Wiener Werkstätte began to design and produce fabrics. Some of the fabric patterns were subsequently repurposed as wallpaper patterns, occasionally with slight variations. This present wallpaper design from the time before 1913, named Jagdfalke [Hunting Falcon], goes back to the co-founder of the Wiener Werkstätte, architect and designer Josef Hoffmann (1870–1956), and is based on a slightly earlier fabric pattern design of that same name. Hoffmann used vegetal elements for it, as are characteristic of this period of his creative career: highly stylized linden leaves and bellflower-like blossoms. The colors of the very graphic-looking wallpaper pattern are graduated and muted.
