This fall celebrates 90th anniversary of one of the most iconic design exhibitions of all time, and one that came to capture the imagination of millions, L'Exposition internationale des arts décoratifs et industriels modernes, a World's Fair held in Paris in 1925. In fact, those coined the term "Art Deco" later in the 60s, derived it from the title of this milestone event. In this grand show, situated in the glorious area between the esplanade of Les Invalides and the entrances of the Grand Palais and Petit Palais, Parisian decorators, department stores, and designers came to showcase Art Moderne in its all of its glory, celebrating the triumph of French design and its connection to its heritage and past. But it wasn’t only France that demonstrated innovations. Russian constructivism was presented in what has since become the iconic Alexander Rodchenko’s worker's club (above), and Frederick Kiesler represented Austria with his City in Space exhibit. To remember this chic tasteful event, here are a couple of images that particularly love of this exposition that put design before technology.
