Art Nouveau draws its name from the boutique "La maison de l'art nouveau" opened in Paris in 1895 by Samuel Bing, an antique dealer passionnate about Japanese art. The movement quickly spreads to all branches of decorative arts. An emblematic illustrator of the period is Alphonse Mucha, famous for its posters of the actress Sarah Bernhardt. Architects take advantage of new materials like steel and glass to imagine Parisian metro stations or the Tassel Hôtel from the architect Horta in Belgium, mixing an esthetic in "whiplash" with functionnality.
