J. & J. Kohn commissioned Josef Hoffmann to design a reasonably-priced house complete with fixtures, fittings and furniture for the Kunstschau 1908. To furnish the house, Hoffmann used many pieces of his already well-known furniture such as the "sitting machine" and the so-called "Fledermaus" suite. The dressing table offered by us was shown in one of the rooms there.
