Art Nouveau Radiator

What Is Art Nouveau?

Art Nouveau was a captivating artistic movement that emerged in the late 19th-century. It is best characterised by its undulating asymmetrical lines used to celebrate organic forms and nature’s delicate curves, marking a departure from the rigidity of preceding artistic styles. As industrialisation advanced and mass production became more prevalent, there was a growing desire to reconnect with handcrafted products and the natural world. Artists broke free from the confines of academic art and sought inspiration from the shapes and flowing lines of nature. The influence of Japanese art and its emphasis on asymmetry and intricate detailing, as well as the discovery of new materials and techniques, further fuelled the movement’s emergence. Cast Iron was used to produce popular Art Nouveau Radiator designs, many of which Trads recreate today.
