Spanning the 1920’s and 30’s the Art Deco period is infamous for its streamlined, geometric design. Household names such as Bakerlite and Lalique are synonymous with Art Deco as well as the exceptional architectural examples of New York’s Chrysler and Empire State buildings as well as the UK’s own listed Hoover Building, Oxo Tower and Battersea Power Station.
