Art Deco style
Art Deco, a major artistic movement of the 20th century, is an ode to sophistication and modernity. Emerging in the 1920s and 1930s in Europe and North America, this style is characterized by an elegant and innovative aesthetic that emphasizes the use of precious materials such as marble, brass, chrome and glass. Abstract patterns, bright colors and geometric shapes were widely used in decorative arts, architecture, fashion and jewelry. Art Deco left a lasting impression, particularly in major cities such as Paris, New York and Shanghai, where many notable buildings and monuments bear witness to the influence of this timeless style.
