I love the sleek look of this bar cart and am a major fan of Deskey’s. His gorgeous streamline designs are classic iconic pieces that will never go out of style. This wonderful cart can be used with modern interiors or traditional antiques. a fantastic design.
Donald Deskey was, along with Henry Dreyfuss, Walter Dorwin Teague, Norman Bel Geddes, Russel Wright, and Raymond Loewy one of the pioneers of American industrial design. Born in Blue Earth, Minnesota, in 1894, Donald Deskey studied architecture at the University of California Berkeley and then painting at the California School of Design, the Art Institute of Chicago, and Art Students League in New York.
In 1925 Donald Deskey visited the “Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes” in Paris, which would play such a seminal role in the spread of the Art déco style. Much impressed by the Paris trade fair, Deskey started to work as a designer and furniture designer, soon ranking as a leading exponent of American Art déco.He then won the competition to design the Radio City Music Hall in the Rockefeller Center in 1930.
He died in 1989 at the age of 94.
