Wagrain 1835 – 1908 Vienna

Founder of a cabinetmaker and furniture factory in Vienna. Michael Niedermoser had a very good reputation as a cabinetmaker. Around 1900 J. M. Olbrich often commissioned him to execute his designs. He thus achieved a very high level of skill. His designs evince an excellent sense of proportion and harmony. The materials used are always displayed to their advantage. As a member of the Viennese Society for Arts and Crafts, Michael Niedermoser not only exhibited regularly and successfully in the Austrian Museum for Arts and Industries (today the Museum of Applied Arts) but also took part in many exhibitions abroad.
