Now about Mackintosh..
No, not that Macintosh..
I am going to go way back to the turn of the 19th century to a designer known as Mackintosh. He was very important in the time of the Arts and Crafts and Art Nouveau styling. Mackintosh was seen as a modernist designer. One of the first to discard the very ornate Victorian styles and designed for people. He did not look at is as designing for the masses. He treated all of his designs as pieces of art. What set him apart from other modern designers of the time is his blend of the geometric and structural designs of Arts and Crafts and the fluid natural feel of Art Nouveau. Here are some of Mackintosh's greatest works, some you may recognize, as for the others, let them inspire you.
The Willow Tea Rooms, Glasgow Scotland
Two famous chairs by Mackintosh. Probably not the most comfortable to sit in, but definitely pieces of art.
Gaudi Apartments by Mackintosh and Antonio Gaudi. Now this is architecture at its most creative and scary.
Now that I think about it an apple sounds good about now!
