This book opens the door to one of the most important periods of design in the twentieth century, and relates the story of every aspect of this fascinating movement of the 1920s and 1930s. The impact of art deco was felt in every sphere of the decorative arts: architectural detailing, furniture, glass, ceramics, metalwork, jewellery, sculpture and print, taking a thematic approach in this authoritative guide, considering a different decorative art for each chapter.
The key players are examined, for example, Lalique and Sabino, Norman Bel Geddes, Van Cleef and Arpels, Sergei Diaghilev, Georg Jensen and Clarice Cliff, so revealing the development of the movement within its historical context.
