Art Deco Lighting soon embraced Modernism and the machine age aesthetic. Lamps were made of brilliant coloured metals such as steel and chrome, with white glass, sometimes decorated with the new Bakelite.
Other well known lighting designers in Paris included Albert Simonet, Maison Desny, Albert Cheuret, Damon, and Eugene and GL Capon. In the USA the modernist style of lighting was embraced from around 1926 onwards and started to appear in the stores. The most succesful lighting designers were Donald Deskey, who designed the interior of the Radio City Hall in the Rockefeller Center, and Von Nessen. Von Nessen was extremely successful in the early 1930s when most businesses were struggling through the Great Depression. His lamps were a novelty and bright and stylish. Ideal for lighting up the gloom of those years!
Jean Perzel was one of the most important modernist lighting designers of the 20s and 30s. Unlike many artists who designed a range of elements such as furniture, glass, fashion, textiles etc. Perzel was exclusively a lighting designer and manufacturer. He developed a special form of glass that would spread light evenly.
There are some good bargains to be had in Art Deco lighting on eBay, and it can really make a huge difference to a room to have a chic and stylish lampshade, sconce, chandelier or lamp.
Edgar Brandt, famous for his wrought iron, formed partnerships with several glass-makers most notably Daum Frères to create many masterpieces of lighting – for example, an Art Deco chandelier with the most delicately formed wrought iron frame supporting textured opalescent glass shades sending a subtle light upwards from the many arms of the fixture. There was a move away from the bronze and pastel shades of the Art Nouveau movement towards more indirect lighting, where the quality and luminosity of the light were more important than the decoration of the fixture. That’s not to say that there are not many examples of highly decorative light fittings, but the textures of white glass, sandblasted, enamelled, or engraved were prized for the different light effects that could be achieved from them.
Such famous names as Jacques-Emiles Ruhlmann and Paul Poiret better known as a furniture designer and a couturier respectively, would design entire rooms. Lighting was such an important part of the complete design of a room, that yet another new profession – that of lighting engineers and designers was created.
Art Deco Lighting had its birthplace in Paris in the 1920s. It was a period of great elegance, there was a feeling of prosperity and optimism and a huge demand for luxury items and home décor. The wealthy Parisians would engage the new professions of ensembliers, artists decorateurs, – what we would now call interior designers, – to create a complete harmonious look for their homes.
