Year: 2008
Edition by f maurer for design galerie, Vienna

Josefine is reversible and fulfills three functions: Once as a candle holder, upside down as a tea light jar or small vase. Corresponding to this there is the vase set Josef by f maurer.

"Josefine is my homage to Josef Hoffmann, whose work had a major influence on Austrian Art Nouveau. Following his design principle, the decoration results from the material itself: Because the glass multiplies the flame with its internal ribs. I use this optical effect in the application as a candle holder. Josefine is shaped by hand in a glassworks from industrially prefabricated material."
