In the arts crafts style
From the 19th-century Arts and Crafts movement to the present day, and from Art Nouveau and Bauhaus to hi-tech and green design, every style of interior design since 1900 is charted in this wide-ranging survey. Design in the 20th century saw an extraordinary evolution, with the emergence of professional interior designers and the growing appetite to redesign homes at frequent intervals.
The publication is devoted to key works of the Czech and European Art Nouveau style from the collections of the Museum of Decorative Arts in Prague. It examines decorative art of the Art Nouveau period as part of the ground-breaking modernization and emancipation trends of the Fin de siecle that brought changes in interior and fashion design, introduced new forms and styles in glass and ceramics, and gave rise to a modern visual language in advertising.
