Tiffany & Co.’s Streamerica is inspired by the aerodynamic principles of the 1939 New York World’s Fair, the Streamlined designed collection evolved from the profile of a DC-3 wing and the bolted metal sheeting of airplane construction. Steel and Industry symbolize America’s aspirations for progress and prosperity. A Timeless expression of Man’s fascination with speed and technology – and his desire to forge a better tomorrow.
It pays homage to stainless steel, the great 20th century material pioneered by Tiffany and Co. in its showcases designed for its 37th street store in 1905 and later for its Fifth Avenue store by Stanford White.
Streamerica is a ground-breaking collection. Never before has Tiffany featured steel as a luxury material, but no other material could convey such a powerful message of contemporary sophistication and masculinity.
My favorite piece of this collection has got to be these Geodome Cufflinks in Stainless Steel. Although they were priced “economically” at $200 in 1993, I was traditionally put off by the fact that they were not made of Sterling Silver, which is what you normally expect to get from Tiffany’s, so I never purchased them retail. Big mistake…
In the many years I have tracked these down on ebay, I think I only came across them twice and the selling price for them was in the 18K gold range of $1,000. In 2001, they were released in 18K gold, but honestly they don’t capture the same sleek, round and industrial look as these do.
Each piece in the Streamerica line is designed to complement each other to form a cohesive statement in stainless steel.
