Wilhelm Foltin was an architect and designer from Innsbruck associated with the Wiener Werkstätte in the 1920s. He designed complex intarsia furniture as well as textiles for the firm. A proponent of empathy-theory (Einfühlungstheorie) in the context of interiors, Foltin, among many other avant-garde architects and designers of the period, believed that specific materials could evoke different emotional effects on the viewer depending on scale, color, texture, and lighting. Literature: Willy Foltin, “Einrichtung – Einfühlung: Einige Randbemerkungen,” Innendekoration: mein Heim, mein Stolz; die gesamte Wohungskunst in Bild und Wort 35 (1924): 393.
