TIMELESS DESIGN BY WILLIAM MORRIS

TIDLÖS DESIGN AV WILLIAM MORRIS

Den vackra ockragula färgen i mönstret ger ett varmt och välkomnande intryck. William Morris (1834-96) har formgivit mönstret Bachelor´s Button. Morris var en engelsk designer och författare och känd som frontfigur för Arts and Craft-rörelsen under 1800-talet. Bachelors Button är det engelska namnet för kornblomster, en vilt växande blomma som Morris inspirerades av under sina promenader på engelska landsbygden.

The latest collaboration with the V&A explores a pattern by William Morris (1834–96), the English designer and writer recognised as the leading figure of the Arts and Crafts Movement. His iconic style drew on nature for inspiration, incorporating natural forms into repeating patterns with timeless appeal. Bachelor’s Button is another name for cornflowers, a beautiful wild flower that Morris would have encountered on country walks.
Morris was an influential supporter of the South Kensington Museum, now the V&A, playing a pivotal role in major acquisitions and contributing to the decoration of the building. Today the museum holds the world’s most comprehensive collection of Morris’s works in virtually every medium.
