The Revival of Art Deco

The Revival of Art Deco

Simplified forms, daring colours, marked geometry: the bases of Art Deco are set! Directly coming from the ’20s, this artistic style, named after the International Exhibition of Modern Decorative and Industrial Arts in 1925, treats itself a second youth. A creative explosion made of brass, opaline and velvet. Fine materials which require high-quality work. Free from the monochrome dogmas of these last few years, artists get inspiration from Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Jean Dunand and dare to let loose. Crafts give prominence to luxurious elements and ancestral savoir-faire: workshops such as Garnier and Linker and Maison Charles don’t hesitate to bring it up to date. Alabaster, woork and bronze get back its former glory, from the time of Pierre Chareau, whose most beautiful works are exhibited are the Gallery MCDE of Pierre-Emmanuel Risch. Same story for mother-of-pearl and lacquer, enhanced by the richness of gildings. Art Deco is first of all about having fun and forgetting what’s common while rediscovering what’s essential. Daybeds, folding screens and console tables are back. An extravagant refinement we love and which reminds us of the influence of the Italian duo Dimore. Just like them, we dare to put an ounce of the roaring twenties in our homes: a strong style for materials and profusion of patterns. A nuance Art Deco cares about and that we could rediscover until 2017, April 2nd at the Modern Art Museum in Paris upon the exhibition AD Collection.
