Art Deco Revived

View all 5 Photos

Though the popularity of art deco peaked in the early eighteenth century, Atelier Sauvage (or “Wild Workshop”) proves it will never go out of style. Inspired specifically by the art deco architecture found in Miami — known for its use of pastel colors, curved walls, and streamlined accents — their “anima” table lamp explores the emotional relationship between object and user. The simple form is composed of two contrasting woods – solid sycamore and French pear – with a natural oiled finish. Meanwhile, the light itself remains completely exposed, an elongated 25 W LED bulb on an entirely separate plane from the lamp base. Defined by simple concentric curves and stacked geometries, decoration and structure become one in the same; this fascinating juxtaposition of natural, raw materials with a slick machine-age aesthetic challenges traditional ideals of material and form. Humble yet bold, the elegant piece plays multiple roles: lamp, sculpture, conversation-starter. Lead designers Paul and Albano (former classmates at the Ecole Boulle) are influenced by a sort of abstract naturalism that they draw from the familiar scenery of Southern France.

​Lizzie Wright is an aspiring artist and designer with a passion for the written word. While she works on her BFA in Industrial Design at the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), she spends her (rare) spare time riding around Providence on her trusty Cannondale and drinking lots of coffee. She is especially fascinated by the dichotomy between aesthetic form and function, which has an immense influence on her work. As a lover of the natural world, Lizzie plans to focus on Nature, Culture, and Sustainability Studies to pursue a more efficient future for design. Read more by visiting her website
