The most obvious feature of the Parisian Bench is the Art Deco inspired central medallion. Art Deco was an influential visual arts design style that first appeared in France just before World War I and began flourishing internationally from the 1920s thru the 40s. It took its name from the Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes (International Exposition of Modern Decorative and Industrial Arts) held in Paris in 1925. This eclectic style combined traditional craft motifs with Machine Age imagery and materials. The style is often characterized by rich colors and bold geometric shapes. The Art Deco movement flourished during the interwar years when rapid industrialization was transforming culture. One of its major attributes was an embrace of technology. It has been defined as an assertively modern style that emphasizes symmetry rather than asymmetry, and the rectilinear rather than the curvilinear. During its heyday, Art Deco represented luxury, glamour, exuberance, and faith in social and technological progress.
The Parisian Bench is constructed of metal and is offered in a variety of finishes and accents. It is made by a casting process. Molten metal is poured into a sand mold that can only be used once. The rough casting is then painstakingly cleaned by hand. This can only be done by a master craftsman with decades of experience. Custom sizing is available. This exquisite bench was designed by Shah Gilani, ISFD.
