In our second series lecture, we will look at the luxury tradition of early 20th century interiors as reflected in the work of Paris designers. Based on the powerful tradition of 18th century design, mixed with the spice of Surrealism, the Art Deco style has become renowned for its deluxe “take” on Modernism. Other Paris-based designers, such as Eileen Gray and LeCorbusier, stood apart from the Art Deco group but created luxurious modernist furnishings. We welcome back Megan Aldrich, decorative art historian, to lead us on this series.
A later start time has been organised to facilitate off-peak transit. Join us at 10:30am for coffee – the lecture will run from 11:00am – 1:00pm with a coffee break.
