Emmy Gould. Art Deco. August 21st , 2018.
Contemporary table lamps focus around functionality and art, which is exactly what lamp design has always been about. From the elegant and distinctive Dale Tiffany Lamps, still made in the tradition of the originals of the highest quality and care, to modern designs made out of almost any material, minimilistic in color and beautiful in polish and sleek looks, to lamps that can even represent other objects (such as a Chinese Take Out box) lighting has come a long way - and continues to evolve in an exciting direction.
The Art Deco Brass Lamp has a design that speaks of the mid 20th century. The design is more complicated. It has elements of architectural and geometrical designs handcrafted into the table lamp. It also uses brass at its base. The art and design incorporated tells us about early industrialization. Its price is not ordinary. The 1930 art deco brass lamps may cost you $8500 while the art deco brass lamps of the 70s are cheaper at around $1900.
The cataclysm of World War II closed the book on Art Deco, as modern technology became more identified with death and destruction than advanced design. And while there has been some isolated resurgence, today Art Deco is mostly viewed nostalgically as a look back to time that is long gone. Due to its ubiquity in architecture and public places, you can still see great examples of Art Deco in cities around the world: the Chrysler Building and Radio City Music Hall in New York are but two of the many examples.
