Douglas Scott
- Favourite Briton.

Born in Lambeth, London
Born in 1913
Died in 1990

He was noted for the practicality of his designs, making them for the market as he put it, rather than attempting to make them things of beauty, their functionality however making them in the end beautiful objects.
