Art Deco is a style of design that first appeared in Europe and flourished internationally between the two World Wars. It is often characterized by bold, streamlined, geometric shapes, rich colors, and stylized ornamentation. In addition to synthesizing characteristics from a number of other artistic movements, the style combines traditional craft motifs with Machine Age imagery and materials. Art Deco emerged as rapid industrialization transformed culture around the world and its design aesthetic touched everything: architecture, furniture, interiors, graphic design, clothing, and many products like automobiles, airplanes and household objects and appliances.
