Join us for a special evening with Peter Sheridan, Art Deco historian, lecturer, author and collector, who is flying in from Australia to share dazzling images of his rare Deco Radio collection that tell the story of the most exquisite receivers ever made.
Peter Sheridan has one of the most important radio collections in the world. Deco Radio: The Most Beautiful Radios Ever Made reveals the extraordinary contribution of famous 1930s industrial designers to the development of the tabletop radio and the subsequent worldwide spread of the Art Deco style.
In his new book, Sheridan reveals the major influence Deco and Streamlining had on the evolution of radio design throughout the 1930s and 1940s. He also explores the global expansion of the Deco radio as a symbol of the new machine age, bringing not only Deco styling and color into the home, but shifting the audience from the family to the individual.
