Industrial design style has a connection with the second industrial revolution which started in the late 19th century and continued till the early 20th century. During this time, there was an economic & productivity boom and urbanization increased all of a sudden. In England & Wales, the population living in cities jumped from 17% in 1801 to 72% in 1891. As people shifted from rural areas to the cities, some industrial buildings were converted into residential spaces.
Designers took inspiration from these spaces and started using their few elements in interior design during the late 2000s. Hence industrial design style came into existence.
Here are few features which make it stand out from the rest of the design styles:
The Space has an open floor plan and a high ceiling with large metal-framed windows. The architectural details are celebrated and new features are used in such a manner that it matches with the existing ones.
The walls are exposed bricks, the flooring is concrete or wooden, pipes and ducts on the ceiling are not concealed. So you will get an unfinished feel from every element whether they are walls, floor, ceiling, furniture or even art.
