|A new popular retro style
for the current boom. It borrows heavily from
Streamline Art Moderne and
and it is influenced by the early 20th century Dutch architecture of
De Stijl (for example, Mondrian art and the Rietfeld House).
When done well, and in its earlier proponents, it was very exciting. It has been abused in a number of cases, needless to say.
It is characterised by the use of flat and folding planes, light grey, charcoal grey and bright white.
