Owen Jones was one of the most influential tastemakers of the Victorian era. His pioneering studies on colour theory, geometry and form still inspire designers to this day.
Trained as an architect, designer and design theorist, Jones’ greatest project was perhaps as Superintendent of Works for the 1851 Great Exhibition. A celebration of the power and potential of new industrial technologies and modern design, Jones' work on the interiors of the Crystal Palace showcased his skills to six million visitors. Ironwork decorated in bold primary tones – vivid reds, yellows and blues – nodded to the Alhambra and Ancient Greece, motifs which surfaced in Jones’ work time and time again.
Our edition picks some of the finest designs from Jones’ book "Examples of Chinese ornament selected from objects in the South Kensington Museum and other collections" for the cover.
