Emanuel Josef Margold (1889 – 1962) was an Austrian architect, interior designer, ceramicist and silversmith.

Education

Josef Hoffmann taught him at the Kunstgewerbeschule in Vienna.

Biography

At the Wiener Werkstätte, he became Hoffmann’s assistant. He and Theodor Wende were the final painters to settle at the Grand Duke Louis IV of Hesse-artists’ Darmstadt’s colony Darmstadt in 1911. He was a prolific designer of furniture, glass, and porcelain in Darmstadt.

For the Hermann Bahlsen biscuit business in Hanover, he designed packaging, window displays, and shop fittings beginning in 1912.

He was commissioned to create silver designs by Bruckmann und Sohne of Heilbronn in 1913. K. Jordan in Darmstadt created his umbrella handles. Delicate beading, fluting, and heart-shaped leaves adorned his silverwork for Bruckmann. He had the same straightforward approach to flower decorating as Hoffmann. For the bakery Bahlens Keksfabrik in Hanover, Margold designed packaging. He moved to Berlin in 1929 and was included as a foreign contributor in the UAM (Union des Artistes Modernes) manifesto of 1949.
