A masterclass in metalwork and glass, the highly ornamented standing. . .
A masterclass in metalwork and glass, the highly ornamented standing mirror showcases the stunning geometric shapes, sleek lines and daring angles that capture the spirit of the Art Deco era. The captivating foliate scroll adorning its base is reminiscent of cattails, while long tendrils draw the eye upwards to two art glass shades offering ample illumination. The creation is a true testament to the designer’s unwavering passion, dedication and ability to elevate ordinary objects into extraordinary works of art.
The Art Deco style emerged as an expression of exuberance and optimism following World War I. Its lasting elegant and sophisticated style served as a welcome and significant cultural shift. Taking its name from the 1925 Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes, a world's fair hosted in Paris to exhibit the groundbreaking new style, the Art Deco movement took the world by storm through the realms of design, architecture, jewelry, glass and more. Attracting more than 16 million international visitors, the fair prominently showcased the work of Paul Kiss. Throughout his career, Kiss received numerous accolades, including a silver medal at the 1924 Salon des Artistes Français. His furniture pieces have earned places in esteemed collections globally, such as the Art Institute of Chicago.
