Set of Art Deco Chromed Metal Wall Lights, Europe ca 1930s

Sold Sold
  • Description
    Standing as evidence of the inventiveness and timeless glamour of Art Deco is this set of four wall lights. These wall lights were designed to provide a sleek and dynamic elegance that symbolized the era’s rich cultural scene in Europe and even today, they exude the same impression to the contemporary eye.

    The design is evocative of the 1930s era, when due to the increased interest in technological innovation and the archaeological discoveries of the time, artists, and designers were influenced by technology as well as ancient Egyptian and Aztec styles. It is because of this unique mashup of elements that art deco - and consequently these lights - stands out as a dramatic, artistic style with bold, sharp lines and abstract forms. Crafted from chromed metal, these wall lights boast a striking aesthetic that is based on the geometric shapes along with symmetric forms. With their unique funnel shape cut in half and the ribbed surface, the lights have lots of depth. This Art Deco lighting set cleverly employs the characteristics of its material to create a distinctive and futuristic effect. There is an additional visual effect when they are arranged close to each other: the light from the lower lights get reflected, lighting up the chromed surface that acts like a mirror. In addition to their aesthetic appeal, the lights are also highly functional, providing a soft and warm light that will transform any room into a welcoming and cosy space.

    The alluring sense of artistic whimsy of these sculptural pieces is unparalleled. Each piece has a sense of character and individuality, meticulously crafted to showcase the very best of the design style. While Art Deco lighting was typical in commercial and municipal structures in its day, these impressive fixtures make great focal points for today’s homes of any style.
