Democratization of design is an important criterion to distinguish traditional design from modern design. Art nouveau movement and modernist design are the inevitable outcome of the democratization process in the history of western modern design. It is of great historical and practical significance to examine their "similarities and differences" from the perspective of history and design democratization.
