Giuseppe Pagano

Giuseppe Pagano was a notable Italian architect and designer who played a large role in the formation of the Rationalist movement. Pagano’s involvement with art and design began after the First World War; during this time, he took on the name “Pagano,” dropping his birth name Pogatschnig. Following the war, Pagano studied architecture and began designing buildings and public spaces in Turin. In the 1930’s, he moved to Milan and continued to work as an architect, and began to work for the home and architectural design publication La Casa Bella, which was founded in 1928 by Guido Marangoni. Pagano’s work took on new forms as he explored the influences of design in Milan; he collaborated with many designers and experimented with other mediums of art.

Art Deco

A prominent style and period in art that was developed in the early 1900’s and steadily spread across Western Europe and America until the 1930’s. Pieces made in this style were exhibited in Paris at the 1925 Exposition Internationale des Arts Decoratifs Industriels et Mordernes from which the genre borrows its name. The emergence of Art Deco is most often viewed as the continuation or response to Art Nouveau, and was regarded as the antithesis to traditional art styles because its intention was to produce pieces representing luxury and elegance. Artists who were inspired by this style drew reference from styles, cultures or concepts that were often contradictory. Art Deco’s influence is visible across many art forms, from glass art to sculpture, architecture to fashion, dance to illustrative or graphic art. Art Deco, evoked a period of creation where artist attempted to go against traditional techniques, and sought out modernity and crafted pieces representative of excess, luxury and elegance. Art Deco is quoted as dying out by 1940, but its influence returned throughout the 1960’s and can still be seen in the arts, fashion and design of today.
