Thanks to this solution in the first half of the 20th century the poor bohemian servants, New York painters and sculptors were able to equip their studios in lofts. Since then the design style originated, which was called “loft”.
Andy Warhol, the famous designer and founder of “pop art” style made a huge contribution and developed loft to such perfection that already in the 50s it was at the peak of popularity and because of that initially cheap lofts turned into elite real estate.
