Josef Hoffmann, co-founder of the “Wiener Werkstätte” designed this tea service for Augarten. The product’s intricate relief-like surface, featuring a fish-scale design, perfectly showcases Hoffman’s ingeniosity as a designer. Indeed, his Atlantis set appears to beautifully balance the tradition of pure white and delicately rounded porcelain with a modern touch of fantasy. As such, “Atlantis” has become a favorite, as it evokes a sense of timeless elegance all the while beautifully showcasing the sensitive qualities of porcelain.
This little jug is a particularly nice addition to a tea service to reinforce the establishment of a simultaneously elegant and cozzy atmosphere.
