PROJECT DESCRIPTON THE DIFFA PROJECT IS CREATED FOR THE DIFFA COMPETITION WHERE DESIGNERS CREATE A DINING EXPERIENCE WHERE PEOPLE BID FOR THE DINING CUBE FOR CHARITY. ITS CREATED FROM A CONCEPT WORD THAT WAS ART DECO IN A 11 BY 11 FEET CUBE, WHERE YOU HAD TO FIT A DINING TABLE FOR 11 PEOPLE. Art Deco, or Deco, is an influential visual arts design style which first appeared in France during the 1920s, flourished internationally during the 30s and 40s, then waned in the post-World War II era. It is an eclectic style that combines traditional craft motifs with Machine Age imagery and materials. Art deco was influenced by the Art Nouveau’s use of motifs depicting nature; sunrises, flowers and shells however, the once loved organically, flowing lines were replaced with geometric and angular shapes. Travel during the deco period became increasing popular, therefore global influences affected the art deco decor and color palette. Egyptian pyramids and sphinxes are commonly seen in art deco interior design and since African safaris were ‘the thing’ to do, animal skins and prints, ivory and mother of pearl were sought after.
