A new exhibit currently running through New York''s Metropolitan Museum of Art offers an immersive experience in one of the most prominent schools of design of the past 100 years - French Art Deco.

Arranged by associate curator Jared Goss, Art Deco at the Met collects nearly 150 objects ranging from a 1922 silver coffee and tea service set designed by Jean E. Puiforcat to sleek veneered cabinets from Jacques-Emile Ruhlmann.

Rooted in the 1925''s Exposition Internationale des Artes Decoratifs et Indusriels Modernes in Paris, Art Deco has become a tremendously influential art movement throughout all disciplines of design including interior and industrial design, fashion, painting and architecture.

The exhibit represents nearly 75 percent of the Met''s entire French Art Deco collection, and is the largest assortment of the era''s works ever to be exhibited at one time, according to the New York Times.

Famous examples of the art-form within the U.S. include the Chrysler Airflow automobile and the spire of the Chrysler building in New York.
