Vintage Industrial Design
What’s so great about an old brick anyway. The earliest bricks were formed from clay or mud and dried in the sun until they were strong enough for use. The oldest discovered bricks were made from shaped mud that date as far back as 7500 BC. But not until the Industrial Revolution in the early 1900’s did bricks become mass produced in large quantities, particularly in England. Due to the speed and economy of production, bricks soon became the building material of choice even in areas where natural stone was available. It was during this time in London that bright red bricks were made for construction of large buildings as it made them more visible in heavy fog and to prevent traffic accidents.
