Although the term Art Deco was coined as a stylistic furniture phrase in Paris during the 1920’s, it captured a future, focused on a modern aspirational lifestyle that developed during the interwar period that included architecture, arts and design. Various stylistic terms were applied to buildings including Streamline Moderne, Stripped Classical, Jazz Moderne (and sometimes Modernist) to describe the diversity and intermixing of building styles and influences during this period.
It is always a pleasure for me to come across new examples of Art Deco styling and details so when I was asked by Brisbane Art Deco to help contribute images for their new publication I was only to happy to help as Brisbane has far fewer examples of Art Deco compared to Melbourne and Sydney.
