History

Industrial design is a largely 20th-century phenomenon. The first industrial designer is often considered German architect Peter Behrens, who was heavily influenced by the 19th-century English designer and poet William Morris and the Arts and Crafts movement, with which Morris was closely associated. During the latter half of19th century, the consumer goods industry proliferated. It necessitated the creation of designer goods owing to the rise of competitive markets.

Craftsmen and artists were engaged in such designing activities initiated by industrialists which promoted the development of prototypes for their products
