Josef Hoffmann Sitzmaschine

David Heim
The very influential designer Josef Hoffmann designed this "sitzmaschine," or machine for sitting, for a sanitorium in Austria in 1905. It is essentially a Morris chair, one with a reclining back that is held in several positions by a rod and stops. Hoffmann apparently made a number of variations on this basic design; this is an amalgam of several sitzmaschines found on the Internet #arm_chair #Arts__Crafts #Austrian_Arts__Crafts #easy_chair #European_Arts__Crafts #European_furniture #Josef_Hoffmann #Morris_chair #sitzmaschine #Vienna_Secession
