Styles In Modern Interior- Art Deco
Art Deco (translated as decorative art) is a art course that first appears after 1925 in architecture and decorative arts in France. As style it is a synthesis of neoclassicism and Art Nouveau. It includes strict forms, ethnic decorations and expensive materials. Although it occurs in Paris, the realization of the style is done in the US, where the entire decade 1930-40 year was marked by this style in the construction, automotive, industrial design, fashion, jewelry and interior design. It is an elegant style which is a mirror of the lifestyle of the consumer society. The most famous buildings in the US that are in Art Deco are the skyscraper Chrysler, New York's Radio City Music Hall, "New York Daily News." building. The architects designed in this style, often lavished their buildings with symbols with abstract images of eagles, wheels and cars. Other architects used symbols like flowers, diamonds, birds and rays. The format of this type of building is an expression of admiration for the architecture of ancient civilizations. Skyscrapers follow a tiered structure of Egyptian pyramids and the temples of Assyria, each successive layer or floor gets smaller. An example of this is the skyscraper "Empire State Building" built in 1931 in New York.
The interior and furniture the Art Deco style borrows from various sources - from the art of the East, ancient Greece, Rome, Africa, India, the culture of the Maya and Aztecs. There are interpretations from the styles of Louis XVI and Art Nouveau, but the emphasis is on the texture and the stylized geometric decoration combined with strong, elegant forms. The essential feature of Art Deco's furniture is the high level of craftsmanship and the usage of expensive materials, woods and rare skins. There are also wrought iron furniture. Often in interiors there are stained glass windows and stained glasses.
