Art Deco was a major design style that originated in Western Europe in the 1920s and flourished internationally during the 1930s. It was a successor to the Art Nouveau movement and stood in contrast to the more organic and floral forms of that period.

Art Deco is characterized by geometric shapes, bright colors, and lavish use of materials such as chrome, stainless steel, ebony, ivory, and Bakelite. The style drew inspiration from a variety of sources, including Cubism, Futurism, and Egyptian Revival.

Here are some of the key features of Art Deco design:

Geometric Shapes: Art Deco designers often used geometric shapes such as zigzags, chevrons, rectangles, and circles in their work.
Bright Colors: Art Deco colors were often bright and saturated, such as black, white, gold, silver, red, green, and blue.
Luxury Materials: Art Deco designers used a variety of luxury materials in their work, such as chrome, stainless steel, ebony, ivory, and Bakelite.
Stylized Patterns: Art Deco designers often incorporated stylized patterns into their works, such as sunbursts, chevrons, and animals.
Streamlined Shapes: Art Deco design was often streamlined, reflecting the machine age.
Art Deco was a popular style for a wide variety of products, including furniture, fashion, jewelry, architecture, graphic design, and interior design. Some of the most famous examples of Art Deco design include the Chrysler Building in New York City, the Empire State Building in New York City, and the Hoover Dam.

Art Deco remains a popular and influential style today. Its geometric shapes, vibrant colors and luxurious materials continue to inspire designers and artists around the world.
