Koloman Moser was a prolific designer in glass, single-handedly producing about 400 designs from 1899 to 1903. The “Streifen und Flecken” pattern, created by Moser around 1900, was a popular motif. With its simple vertical lines punctuated by bold, playful spots, the pattern was produced in a wide variety of color combinations, shapes, and sizes. Marvel over the Vase’s bold pattern in “Glass of the Architects: Vienna, 1900-1937,” a cooperation of the MAK and LE STANZE DEL VETRO, now on view through January 7, 2019.
