Josef Hoffman: Hoffman is best known for his furniture and glassware, but Toogood is inspired by the Austrian designer's jewelry pieces, produced during the early part of the 20th century, which she calls “small works of art. The Wiener Werkstätte designers’ sense of decoration feels very interesting and relevant right now. They were using traditional decoration techniques and traditional materials — brass and copper and silverware and crystal — but somehow it was feels graphic and very modern. I think a lot of people, like my husband, find decoration superfluous or unnecessary. But I think it’s really important and it’s often what can really make you respond to a space in an emotional way.”
