120th anniversary of the Vienna Workshop/100th anniversary of the death of Dagobert Peche 11.10.2023

Special stamp 120 years of the Wiener Werkst├Ątte

The integration of art into all aspects of life was a principle of the legendary Vienna Workshop, of which Dagobert Peche was a member.

Josef Hoffmann, Koloman Moser, and Fritz Waerndorfer founded the Vienna Workshop in 1903 as an association of artists who designed and produced jewellery, furniture, textiles, ceramics, glass, graphics, and print graphics. Dagobert Peche (1887–1923) was regarded as an "ornament genius"; he designed jewellery, furniture, and fabrics and headed the Zurich branch of the Vienna Workshop from 1917 to 1919. In 1921, he also designed stamps, but these were never realised. The miniature sheet features a female head, one of these designs from the postal archive. On the second stamp, there's a design for the fabric "Geranium" from the MAK, created by Felice Rix (1893–1967) around 1929. From 1914, she worked for the Vienna Workshop, primarily designing ceramics, wallpapers, textiles, and fashion accessories.
