Draw on Art Deco

Art Deco strongly influenced visual arts and design most prominently in the 1920s and 1930s. It’s an eclectic style that affected all forms of design—a perfect example is The Chrysler Building in New York City. Eyewear artisans have discovered that it translates beautifully into frames. Shapes with Art Deco tendencies are characterized by geometric lines and rich colours, plus pearly silver tones often teamed with black. Frame fronts are embellished with intricate metal work or graphic accents with a distinct air of luxury. They are impressive and stylish and often very three-dimensional. ■
