Jeremy Aynsley is Professor of Design History at the University of Brighton and Chair of the Design History Society. He graduated in History of Art at the University of Sussex (BA, MA), before pursuing doctoral research at the Royal College of Art. Before taking up his appointment at Brighton, he was Professor of History of Design at the Royal College of Art, where he was also Director of Research from 2009.
Professor Aynsley has published extensively on late-nineteenth- and twentieth-century design in Europe and the United States, with a particular focus on design in modern Germany. He is especially interested in the phenomenon of the migration of Modernism, avant-garde and commercial visual languages in graphic design, as well as the education and professionalisation of the designer. A further research specialism is in the history of the domestic interior and its representation through publication and exhibition.
As the recipient of major research grant awards, Professor Aynsley was Director of the AHRC Centre for the Study of the Domestic Interior (RCA, V&A and Royal Holloway, University of London) from 2001 to 2006, and Principal Investigator on the AHRC-funded research project The Viennese Café and Fin-de-Siècle Culture from 2006 to 2009 (RCA, Birkbeck, University of London).
Professor Aynsley has also contributed to several exhibitions. Most recently, in 2009–11, he contributed to the exhibition and publication, California Design, 1930–1965: ‘Living in a Modern Way’, a project led by Wendy Kaplan of the Department of Design and Decorative Arts at Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
