Inspired by Art Deco

We have elegantly captured the essence of one of the great periods in 20th Century design.

Torsten Müller-Ötvös, Chief Executive

From its beginnings in Paris in the early 20th Century, the Art Deco movement was a response to an era of rapid development of technology and the innovative use of new materials. Geometric shapes, recurring motifs and stylised images featured heavily across Art Deco design. Simplicity in form, sweeping lines and streamlining gave the movement an appeal that shocked convention, but delighted high society.

The Spirit of Ecstasy, created by sculptor Charles Robinson Sykes in 1911, could be described as a prequel to the movement. While the beautiful Phantom models of the 20s and 30s show the Art Deco influence in their bespoke coachwork, echoes of the look can still be found in the clean lines and elegant proportions of today's Phantom and Ghost models.

In homage to this golden age we have created three Rolls-Royce Art Deco cars. Fittingly launched at the Paris Motor Show 2012 these highly bespoke motor cars are inspired by the timeless designs, colours and motifs of the movement.

An exclusive collection of Bespoke Phantom and Ghost cars, inspired by the Art Deco cars at Paris, will be made available to order. For more details please contact your nearest Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Dealer.
