Art Deco is a loose term, that may include:

  • Interwar Free Classicism (Deco Free Classicism): using classical motifs largely as decoration, in a very stylised or abstracted manner, with little reference to the norms of the classical language
  • Jazz Moderne [Zig-Zag Moderne]: No particular classical references. Angular lines and vertical emphasis. Somewhat related to ‘Skyscraper Gothic’.
  • Streamlined Moderne: No particular classical references. Curved lines and horizontal emphasis. Related to the ‘streamlining’ of contemporary forms of transport.
