Gallery – Art Deco
A tribute to the years following the First World War, when one world had perished and another was coming to life. This period brought about major changes in the decorative arts, most particularly in furniture design. Cubism and Fauvism were also important influences. Architects sought simplicity, geometric form, and structural coherence.
A building’s form was meant to express its function, without superfluous ornamentation. Art Nouveau was composed of undulating forms, detailed and based upon nature, whereas Art Deco used geometry stripped of all unnecessary decoration.
The “garçonne”, or free woman, is a symbol of the Art Deco period, which inaugurated women’s rights. For men and women alike who admire the beauty of the female form, this Lodge is an evocation of the exciting and creative 1920′s. With its refined shapes and hidden niches, it will plunge you into an atmosphere of rarefied beauty.
