Background Reading- understanding more about this Art Deco light

Design History:

Originating in the 1920s the Art Deco style reflected the sleek lines of the machine age- streamlined, geometric and stylised. Deco influences were rich and varied- Art Nouveau, Bauhaus and Cubism alongside decorative elements referenced from Egyptian, Classical, American Indian. Common Deco motifs are sun-rays, foliage, animals and the female form.

The style was first exhibited in Paris in 1925 ‘Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes’. This movement in decorative arts and architecture was also called ‘style moderne’ and was seen as a more fashionable version of modernism. Art Deco represented the luxury end of the market and if you wore and owned Art Deco items, you were seen as wealthy and sophisticated. This association with luxury and modernity was due to the very expensive materials and high calibre craftsmanship of Deco pieces. The best designers and makers were commissioned to fit out the great ocean liners. From ivory and silver inlays, diamonds, and platinum no expense was spared.

Art Deco became the principal style in the West during the 1930s and went out of favour during World War II. The 60s saw a revival and this style remains of great interest with prized examples held in museum collections all over the world.
