Classic style door handle on back plate
In response to the organicism of the previous style, the motifs of Art Deco originated in a cubism-inspired geometry where orthogonal broken lines alternated with curvilinear sections. The key features included symmetrical order, interlocking and shifted concentric circles, rhomboids and zigzag patterns.
Renaissance trend in which the interest for detail and for the curvilinear manufacturing of metals grows, set up on the architectural principle typical of Baroque.
The production of this period enhances ornamental motifs which are more and more lively. New elements appear such as: volutes, curls, putti, wreaths and cupids.
