Expressionistic, dramatic and curvy lines, intense colours, sharp angles and exuberant, decorative elements: are some characteristics of the Amsterdam School style. This remarkable and bold style manifested itself between 1910 and 1940 and it was the source of inspiration for this irresistible Tiffany ‘Amsterdam School’ collection.
An important style feature of the Amsterdam School is the attention to creativity of traditional craftsmanship and you can definitely see that in these Tiffany lamps. The parabola shape is an element that often reoccurs in the Amsterdam School style. This art style experienced its glory days in the Roaring Twenties. The Amsterdam School is also seen as the Dutch Art Deco, but the movement itself also had international influence. Examples of the world famous Amsterdam School architecture are, among others, the Shipping House or the current Grand Hotel Amrâth of architect Jan van der Meij, The Ship by Michel de Klerk and the building of Dutch department store Bijenkorf (Bee hive) in The Hague by Piet Kramer. The most spectacular interior designs were created by Jaap Gidding, Michel de Klerk, Piet Kramer, Hildo Krop and Marie Kuyken.
Let yourself be seduced by the bold and exuberant Amsterdam School style. The Amsterdam School Tiffany collection is an exclusive, art historical series with expressionistic Amsterdam School lamps that exude international appeal.
