Decorative designs (41 works)
After his success as a poster artist, Mucha began to develop his talents as a designer. By 1900 his design work had expanded to a wide range of objects including everyday domestic utensils, fixtures and sculptures, as well as packaging and interior decoration. He worked regularly with the Parisian jeweller Georges Fouquet, not only designing jewellery but also creating a comprehensive design scheme for his new boutique on the rue Royale (1901). Mucha believed in the production of beautiful yet practical and affordable objects for ordinary people, and published two design handbooks in the hope that designers would embrace this idea: Documents décoratifs in 1902 and Figures décoratives in 1905.
