Josef Frank: Design on the Path to Modernism

25.9.–4.10.2015

With the augmentation of its Josef Frank Collection the Hofmobiliendepot focused on a great name in the history of Austrian design and architecture. The historical retrospective compiled designs of the interiors that Frank conceived in 1932 for his colleague Bettina Kerner and her husband Isidore Ezra Cohen. After their meticulous restoration, the pieces were presented for the first time to the public by the curator Eva B. Ottillinger. The finely arranged interior furnishings included chests of drawers and seating furniture, also wallpaper and fabrics by the Austrian designer. One of the exhibition’s highlights was a wellreceived presentation of the catalogue raisonné by its author Marlene Ott-Wodni.
