Tiffany & Co. introduced the Streamerica collection of personal accessories and watches in 1990 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of its New York headquarters.
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.
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.
The Streamerica Metrozone Travel Frame consist of two small panels that close up to create a winglike compact case that holds your two precious photos in place for “travel”. I say travel because that is the name of this photo frame, but unfortunately even though this item is relatively small, its way too heavy for anyone to actually take this photo frame on any vacation or travel.
Each photo measures 2” across x 1.675” high. It comes with two cardboard stock photos, one says Tiffany & Co. and the other one says Streamerica. They are protected by a thin layer of glass and held together in place by two kind of paper clip mechanisms that secure the glass on top of the photo. Once closed, the frame measures a mere 3” across and 2” high, and weighs 12.4 oz, but it feels almost like a pound.
It is engraved on the top part, Tiffany & Co. and has the classic streamerica rivets and lines laser engraved into both top and bottom part.
This piece and the Metrozone Travel Alarm clock make up the Metrozone collection because when closed they both look almost the same,
They are reminiscent of the grand era of luxury travel, when graceful ocean lines traversed the seas.
