Adolf Loos was an architect and designer during the early twentieth century who viewed ornaments as an expression that needed to be eliminated to best express modern civilization and style. Pictured is a representation of his furniture design work that features the clean simplicity of his work; it was free of ornaments and focused on a geometric simplicity which pointed towards the beginning of twentieth-century modernism. Built-in shelving, seating and cabinets supported a clean functional approach to design. To the right is an Oak and Brass Side Table from 1905 and to the left is a mahogany stool from 1905.
