Art Deco

Originating in the 1920’s and expanding to the 1930’s the Art Deco period depicted modernism through design. Luxury and mass-produced objects embodied the sleekness associated with innovative cities. Distinguished for its clean lines, geometric forms, and overtly stylized figures, the period utilized new materials such as chrome, plastic, and stainless steel. Motifs referenced the rising city skylines and skyscrapers like the stepped shape often appearing in furniture and decorative objects.
