Beaux Arts reborn with Siematic

100 years ago, American architects flocked to the École des Beaux Arts in Paris to be schooled in the decorative arts. The ideas and inspiration they brought home spawned the Beaux Arts movement and they yielded what’s arguably the most famous example of the Beaux Arts style in the US, 1911′s New York Public Library.

Now that is what my friend Tom would call a Beaux Arts pile.

The Beaux Arts movement of a century ago was the great amalgamator. Beaux Arts buildings and the Beaux Arts style borrowed heavily from the decorative styles that preceded it and combined everything into fanciful and exuberant buildings and rooms. Beaux Arts embraced the modern by absorbing the past.

Around 100 years later, Siematic teamed with superstar designer Mick de Giulio to interpret Beaux Arts for the 21st century. As was the case 100 years ago, Siematic’s Beaux Arts honors the many forms that came before it and presents something utterly new.
