Art Deco


Used since the 1960s to refer to a highly decorative style of design, characterized by streamlined geometric forms and bright colors, that was influential in Europe and the United States in the 1920s and 1930s. With roots in Art Nouveau, it was originally promoted by the 1925 Paris Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes, but one could also argue that it emerged from such 20th-century avant-garde movements as Cubism, Fauvism, and Constructivism.
