MAK / Museum of Applied Arts presents Otto Prutscher, an architect and designer, an exhibition designer, teacher, and member of all the important arts and crafts movements – from the Secession to the Werkbund.

Prutscher was one of the first students of the Vienna School of Arts and Crafts. Being taught by Josef Hoffmann and the painter Franz Matsch clearly left its mark on Prutscher’s designs: this is evident in both their high-quality draftsmanship and their constant alignment with prevailing architectural trends.
