Woodworker: Josef HoffmanAustrian designer and architect Josef Hoffmann (1870-1956) designed this adjustable armchair around 1908. It is a quintessential example of the Arts and Crafts period. It features a steam-bent beechwood frame, a plywood geometric pattern, and brass. It is finished with a mahogany stain. The chair was manufactured in Austria by J & J Kohn.
