William Morris - the History of Design


William Morris (1834-96) was one of the most prominent British artists and thinkers of the 19th century.

After the Industrial Revolution, with the flood of low-quality mass-produced products, Morris aimed to restore the craftsmanship of medieval guild societies where people had a work life full of joy derived from creating things. He materialized his unique initiative to incorporate art into everyday life through his comprehensive activities related to interior decoration.
