Tracing the Roots of the Neo Art Deco Movement

Here at EDO, our designs are heavily influenced by the style of Neo Art Deco. It draws inspiration from the early 20th century- a time of innovation, progress, and prosperity- and pays homage to this period by incorporating these design elements into unique wood surface panels and wall cladding. To better understand the nature of the Neo Art Deco genre, and its raging popularity among other interior design trends, we shall take a look at the history of the Neo Art Deco Movement.


Neo Art Deco is a design style that rose to prominence in the 1920s and 1930s. Also known as Art Moderne, it featured a fusion of Art Deco's decorative elements with the sleek and aerodynamic designs of the Machine Age. The Art Deco style, which was characterized by bold geometric shapes, streamlined curves, and a love of symmetry, was revived with a touch of modernity as Neo Art Deco.


The origins of Neo Art Deco can be traced back to the 1925 Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes held in Paris, which showcased the latest in modern design and gave international recognition to the Art Deco movement. In the 1930s, the style evolved to include elements of the Machine Age, giving rise to the Neo Art Deco movement.


The Neo Art Deco movement has had a significant impact on the world of design, and its influence can still be seen today. Its sleek and bold aesthetic has inspired designers in varied fields. By merging the glamour and exuberance of Art Deco with the streamlined designs of the Machine Age, the style of Neo Art Deco has left an indelible mark on the history of architecture, interior design and fashion.


When it comes to interior design trends, the style of Neo Art Deco can be added to your spaces through the use of wood surface panelling and wooden wall cladding. In terms of wood surface and wall panelling, the Neo Art Deco style often features bold geometric shapes, such as chevrons, zigzags, and diamond patterns. These patterns can be achieved through the use of veneers, inlays, and other decorative techniques. Wood surface panels can also incorporate other elements of the Neo Art Deco style, such as the use of modern materials like chrome and glass.
