Design Description

The Deco Chrome Moth aims to capture the spirit of Streamline Moderne; where aerodynamic forms reflect the age of rapid industrialisation and transforming culture. New materials like chrome spoke to luxury, glamour, exuberance and faith in social and technological progress.

The chrome and rivets imply components of the Gypsy Moth engine. The highly reflective quality of the material aims to be striking in it’s juxtaposition of the moth form – referencing futurism – and at the same time capturing peoples reflections to provide a quiet, contemplative moment.
