9th July 2023

Art Deco is a style of visual arts, architecture and design that developed into an international design movement in the 1920s and 30s. Named after the International Exhibition of Modern Decorative and Industrial Arts held in Paris in 1925, Art Deco (French Arts Decoratifs) exerted its distinct style over the graphic arts in a manner that reveals the influence of its love for speed and adoration of the machine.

It is also evident in architectural icons like the Chrysler Building and the American Radiator building, constructed with an exterior of reinforced concrete and an interior of highly polished marble, glass and steel.

Echoes of this classic style can be seen in Mid-Century Modern and later designs, carrying forward the streamlined aesthetic and revisiting the clean simplicity of the Bauhaus. Art Deco inspired an array of objects from magazine covers and colourful posters to fashion and functional items including furniture, clocks, cars, trains and ocean liners, presenting them in a striking, futurist light. Art Deco posters remain highly sought after for their revolutionary airbrushing techniques and iconic designs
