In Munich, in 1898, Bernhard Pankok was a co-founder of the Vereinigten Werkstätten für Kunst im Handwerk [United Workshops for Artistry in Craftsmanship], an artist-run cooperative dedicated to the production, promotion, and sale of Jugendstil (German Art Nouveau) applied art.  It was the Munich and Bremen forerunner and analogue of the Wiener Werkstätte in Vienna.
