In the 1930s, Gordon Russell’s design work entered the forefront to British Modernism and in 1935 he opened a furniture factory at Park Royal, which by late 1930s had a workforce of 800. In 1941 he joined the design panel of Utility Furniture Committee and from 1947 to 1959 he directed the Council of Industrial Design. Gordon Russell believed in public service through design, which stemmed from Arts and Crafts origins, and which became the ideological basis of modern British design in the 1940s and 1950s.
