Collection Exhibition Series Vol.17


Streamlined (Exhibition venue)

This is a serial exhibit in which we show, on a theme-by-theme basis, our nearly 2,000 examples of art deco design from the 1930s in the United States, pieces that form the cornerstone of 20th Century design history and also affected Japanese industrial design. In volume 17, we showcased design that exhibits the characteristics of streamlining, the symbol of modern design of the time that took the world by fire.
