Mauritius Herrgesell trained as an architect at the Vienna School of Arts and Crafts from 1901 to 1905 under Prof. Josef Hoffmann. The design for the showcases is strongly influenced by Hoffmann’s then formal language. The execution of the pieces was carried out in the workshop of his father Anton Herrgesell, a renown Viennese cabinetmaker who had his salesroom at one of the best addresses in Vienna, Am Stephansplatz 9, just opposite the main entrance to St. Stephan’s Cathedral.
