Vienna 1900: Felice Rix (in German)

With her unique and highly poetic style, Felice Rix-Ueno was one of the most remarkable artists of the Wiener Werkstätte (WW, founded in 1903) and left an indelible mark on the company’s creations. It is unmistakable in hundreds of designs, primarily for fabric patterns but also for wallpapers, embroideries, works in enamel, fashion and home accessories, toys, and commercial graphic design. In her second home of Japan, she also found success as a university professor and founded her own design institute. In the year when this unique designer would have celebrated her 130th birthday, the MAK is proud to host her first solo show outside Japan: with some 200 objects the exhibition STARS, FEATHERS, TASSELS: The Wiener Werkstätte Artist Felice Rix-Ueno (1893–1967) provides an illuminating insight into the glorious colors and shapes of her oeuvre.
