Art Deco. Thursday , August 09th , 2018 - 21:39:26 PM
A few years ago I worked on my sister's Art Deco apartment in Paris. The living room featured sofas in grey leather with shiny burl wood, the custom cabinetry which hid the TV was done in cream lacquer, the walls were finished in very smooth Venetian plaster in a yellowish palette, and round, heavy mirrors were framed in Zebra and Ebony woods. Window treatments used a simple sheer to cover large windows and the floors were limestone squares. If you're going to do Deco, you need to follow through with at least an entire room, as the style demands continuity in all the elements of the space. The resulting effect transports you to a different and altogether more glamorous high society, where Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers danced the night away, drinking champagne without a care in the world.
As the influence of industrial power, materials such as stainless steel and textures enter the art deco. It affects people's vision on nature and creates such things like lacquered wood. From this influence, it is growing and the expression of the space of a room becomes more creative.
When designing the chair, the Parsons School designers didn't radically reinvent the idea of the chair (as, say, the Bauhaus did in Germany). Instead, the designers streamlined historical influences, kept what worked, threw away what didn't, and created an enduring modern classic. The main traits of this - its naturalism, simplicity and linear look - are classic Modernist traits, but the style reflects 1800s Mission and Arts and Crafts styles, the Art Nouveau styles that emerged later, and the Art Deco that was contemporary at the time of the parsons chair's design. The simplicity of the chair fits with these styles and a great variety of others, both classic and modern.
