Dress Or Furnishing Fabric, Regenbogen (Rainbow), 1919
This object is not part of the Cooper Hewitt's permanent collection. It was able to spend time at the museum on loan from The Art Institute of Chicago as part of The Jazz Age: American Style in the 1920s.
A variant of this Rainbow pattern was used in the upholstered Gondola chairs designed by Josef Urban for the group’s New York shop. Chicago collector Robert Allerton presumably acquired this fabric in 1922 or 1923 when the Art Institute of Chicago held a Wiener Werkstätte exhibition; he gave it to that museum in 1924.
It is credited
Lent by The Art Institute of Chicago, Gift of Robert Allerton, 1924.211.
Its dimensions are
139.9 x 94.0 cm (55 x 37 in.)
This object was previously on display as a part of the exhibition The Jazz Age: American Style in the 1920s.
