Dagobert Peche (1887-1923) was a member of the Wiener Werkstatte, a loose co-op of artisans and architects brought together after the Secessionist period. Founded by Josef Hoffmann and Koloman Moser, the Werkstatte generally produced high quality goods that may be considered the initial modernist industrial design production in Continental Europe. The firm greatly influenced later German and Austrian design groups, including the Bauhaus.
Peche, like Hoffmann, was notable for his focus on minor detailing. At this time he is especially noted for his lighting, mirrors and frames, ornate by today's standards, which are quite restrained from that of the Art Nouveau period- placing emphasis on the contents or image therein. Peche is also known for numerous stylized designs on various materials, including plates, glassware, and wallpaper.
