Charles Rennie Mackintosh
(1868-1928) is one of the most significant British designers of the 20th Century. His work displays classic Art Nouveau stylistic features visible in his instantly recognisable floral motifs and reduced lines. Mackintosh designed several public buildings, his most famous the Glasgow School of Art and the Glasgow Tea Rooms. A number of his high-backed chairs such as Hill House
and Willow 1
, produced by Cassina
, are still impressive today with their extreme proportions, geometric severity and preponderance of right angles.
