Art Deco has a substantial impact in most all areas including the design of jewellery, sculptures, furniture art deco, glass, Tiffany lamps, architecture and graphic design. The artists of the period such as Demetre CHIPARUS were influenced by Egyptian, Greek, Roman, and the far East themes and historical objects.

Bakelite radios that time as Spartan and Fada are collected, but at the time of their production they brought colorful design and the sound of the radio to the public through industrialization and mass production techniques.
