Where is the art in design?
Industrialization and the coming of the machine age provoked strong reactions in a number of artists and designers in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. While some were critical of the changes taking place, others embraced them. The Arts and Crafts movement and the Bauhaus exemplify two such responses. In both cases, the issues raised by their adherents led to serious thinking about art and design and, ultimately, had a major impact on domestic architecture and furnishing, as well as interior decoration.
