The essay was written when Art Nouveau —known as Secession in Austria and which Loos had excoriated even at its height in —was showing a new way forward for modern art.

The essay is important in articulating some moralizing views, inherited from the Arts and Crafts movement , which would be fundamental to the Bauhaus design studio, and would help define the ideology of modernism in architecture. He eventually conceded to requirements by adding a flowerpot. In the essay, Loos explains his philosophy, describing how ornamentation can have the effect of causing objects to go out of style and thus become obsolete. It struck him that it was a crime to waste the effort needed to add ornamentation, when the ornamentation would cause the object to soon go out of style.

Loos introduced a sense of the "immorality" of ornament, describing it as "degenerate", its suppression as necessary for regulating modern society. He took as one of his examples the tattooing of the " Papuan " and the intense surface decorations of the objects about him—Loos says that, in the eyes of western culture, the Papuan has not evolved to the moral and civilized circumstances of modern man, who, should he tattoo himself, would either be considered a criminal or a degenerate.

Loos never argued for the complete absence of ornamentation, but believed that it had to be appropriate to the type of material.

Loos concluded that "No ornament can any longer be made today by anyone who lives on our cultural level Freedom from ornament is a sign of spiritual strength".
