Habitus Loves… An Art Deco Resurgence

Habitus Loves… An Art Deco Resurgence

The Art Deco style is characterised by geometric shapes, strong arches, angles, and a high-contrast colour scheme. This Habitus Loves list sums it up perfectly.

District Rug by Kelly Wearstler for The Rug Company from Vela

The refined District design is inspired by Wearstlers affinity for mixing rich organic stone palettes and the tension of graphic inlaid pattern work. District is hand-knotted using fibre drawn from the bamboo plant, which has an appearance very similar to silk but at a surprisingly low price.

Ring Coffee Table by Minotti from Dedece

Challenging the rules of geometry, designer Nendo conceived Ring, a family of five tables that play with contrasts between straight lines and curves. The eye is attracted to the emptiness at the centre of the rings, with an effect of space and lightness, truly an Art Deco style.

Tassel 19 by Apparatus from Criteria

The Tassel Series condenses the warmth and decadence of a traditional chandelier to a concise, modern conclusion. Emanating from a brass dome, the light is amplified as it refracts through mould-blown glass cylinders.

Beetle Chair by Gubi from Cult

The inspiration of the Beetle Chair Collection has been found in the insect world as GamFratesi has been looking closely at the anatomy and movement of the beetle. The result is a chair that cunningly interprets the shell of this four-legged creature.

Bibendum by Eileen Gray for ClassiCon from Anibou

It’s comfy, it’s curvy, it’s even downright friendly – just like the Michelin man it was named after. Nowhere in the history of design will one find an armchair that compares to this. It is captivatingly harmonious despite its size and unites a majestic impressiveness with charm and wit like no other.
