Art Deco was a new style that epitomized the era & pervaded every aspect of life. Characterized by clean lines, stylized flowers, & geometric patterns, it was functional & modern. Designers of the era celebrated the modern, yet were often inspired by the ancient -- Egyptian, Aztec, & Far Eastern influences were all evident among the great designs of Lalique, Ruhlmann, & Barbier. Aspects of machine design influenced the creation of everyday objects such as cutlery, & encouraged the use of new materials like Bakelite & chrome. This volume captures a wide range of Art Deco art & design, from the luminous glass of Lalique, to the bold forms inspired by the machine age. Over 100 color illustrations.
