Vienna Secession Armchair by Dagobert Peche (1887-1923) is an example of fine Vienna Secession design. He was, next to Josef Hoffmann, the most influential designer in the Weiner Werkstaette. He is known for his highly imaginative and artistic designs which combined the elegant with the functional. His work took on many forms, from furniture such as this armchair, from his workshop, to the most exquisite pieces of jewelry.
