„ Skyscraper“ Art Deco mirror

A “skyscraper” mirror in the Art Deco style refers to the use of geometric shapes reminiscent of skyscrapers. This type of modernist mirror became popular in the 1920s and 1930s during the Art Deco era, when the architecture of cities was influenced by the introduction of skyscrapers.

The “skyscraper” frames of these mirrors were typically made from materials such as chrome, brass, or wood, and had clean, geometric lines and patterns. The mirrors themselves were often faceted, giving them a special shine and optical depth.

The “skyscraper” mirrors in the Art Deco style embody the ideals of modernism and progress that dominated the Art Deco era. They were an expression of the spirit of the times and reflect the influences of architecture and industry on design. Today, these mirrors are highly sought after as collector’s items and as decorative objects in the Art Deco style.

“Skyscraper” is a term generally used for tall buildings or skyscrapers. The term was coined in the 1880s in relation to the construction of the first skyscraper, the Home Insurance Building in Chicago.

In the design field, the term “skyscraper” is also used for objects that mimic or are inspired by the appearance of skyscrapers. Examples of these are everyday objects such as lamps, clocks, desk accessories, and mirrors, which are typically designed with clean geometric shapes, stepped edges, and chrome finishes.
