Hoffmann Bronzit Series B Water Tumbler - Set of 2
This collection Hoffmann Bronzit Series B was designed by Josef Hoffmann in 1912.
In 1914 Lobmeyr edited the set for the first time, executed in mat glass with black enamel broncit decoration. It was also distributed through the shops of the Wiener Werkstätte.
The elegantly styled, round glass objects are made by blowing the glass into a beechwood mold. The result is a glass with remarkably thin walls, which has been dubbed “muslin” because of its likeness to the eponymous French fabric. The glass is then etched with columns and rows of black lines that lend the pieces a classical feel.
