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.
