Description
Information
Christopher Dresser (1834 - 1904) was a pioneer of modern design and arguably Europe's first industrial designer. He enthusiastically promoted machines and mass-production, and his prolific output embraced a wide range of styles and techniques in ceramics, glass, metalwork, furniture, carpets, textiles, wallpapers and interior decoration. He worked for the leading manufacturers of the day, and was an influential writer and theorist, stressing the importance of function, simplicity, mechanical skill and the use of readily available materials. His work is now eagerly collected.

With their bold shapes, angular geometry and rich colours, Dresser's designs have exercised a powerful influence on modern taste. Widar Halen's book is the first to be published on this major figure.
