MAK — Austrian Museum of Applied Arts

The MAK Austrian Museum of Applied Arts is unique in its ability to represent the history and significance of the Wiener Werkstätte — a productive association that pioneered modern design, and whose influence can be seen in later styles such as Bauhaus and Art Deco. The archive comprises, among others, about 16,000 design drawings and about 20,000 fabric samples. One of the highlights of the MAK’s collection is Gustav Klimt’s nine-part working drawings for the mosaic frieze in the dining room of the Palais Stoclet in Brussels. After a restoration process that took several years, this has again been on permanent display in the MAK since 2012.
