Art Deco was an international design movement which flourished through the 20’s and 30’s and applied to architecture and consumer products.
The style was popularised by the Paris exhibition of 1925. It caught on after World War 1 and reigned until the onset of World War 2. Influences included Cubism with its zig zags and geometricals, Ancient Egypt following the discovery of Tutankhamun by Howard Carter and Lord Carnaervon in 1922 and Aztec and Mayan Art from South America and Mexico.
