Lot No. 45


A carpet, designed by Hans Steineder*


, Austria, c. 1930, slit Kilim rug, wool on cotton, 195 x 130 cm. (DRAX)

A unique specimen.

Provenance:
private ownership, Linz, Austria; private ownership, Vienna, acquired in 2015

Lit.:
cf. Viel zu modern. Hans Steineder. Architekt, exhibition catalogue, Architekturzentrum Wien (AZW) 1999, p. 1, p.14, p. 65; F. Achleitner, Österreichische Architektur des 20. Jahrhunderts, vol. 1, p. 168, p. 171; Architekturzentrum Wien (AZW), estate of Hans Steineder.

Although no carpet designs by the Austrian architect Hans Steineder (1904–1976) are documented in literature, this work is stylistically closely related to his early buildings and interiors. The short horizontal stripes rhythmically repeated along the edges of the carpet are reminiscent of the combinations of three or four flat ornaments Steineder preferably used for façades and interiors, such as for the Villa Stocker or the mosaic flooring at the school at Attnang-Puchheim.
