Art deco originated in Paris around 1925 after the World Exhibition on decorative art. This was a period just after world war 1 and there was an idealistic and optimistic spirit in Europe. New art movements like Art Deco, Bauhaus and the Dutch Stijl had great impact on architecture, interior-, graphic- and product design. Currently we see originals or interpretations of these styles and patterns recurring in fashion and interior design. Also the use of colour from this period is a great source of inspiration.
