Embracing a variety of influences from Neoclassical, to cubism, to modernism; Art Deco flourished in the 1920s and 1930s, affecting all areas of design. While many movements often had political or philosophical roots, Art Deco was purely decorative.

Architecturally, the two most popular examples are the Empire State Building and the Chrysler Building, both in New York City. Vehicle-wise, we need not look further than the stunning examples below, enjoy!
