LEATHER'S WARMTH WOVEN IN SIMPLICITY
In 1950, Jacques Adnet formed a partnership with the French fashion house Hermés, where he developed a collection of discreet yet voluptuous leather-covered furniture and interior accessories. Adnet was one of the first designers to combine leather with glass and accordingly designed the elegant, distinctive leather mirror in round and square versions.
ELEGANT AND ADAPTABILE
The Adnet Rectangulaire Mirror in three sizes serves equally well in a hallway, bathroom, and dressing room, either horizontally, vertically, mounted to the wall, or spontaneously leaned against it. The Adnet Rectangulaire leather mirror is studded with burnished brass rivets on the edges, a characteristic detailing of Adnet's work.
Jacques Adnet (1900 - 1984) was a French architect and Art Deco Modernist designer and an icon of luxurious French Modernism. Throughout his career, Adnet was always among the first artists to express new trends. As a true member of the avant-garde in his time, he was an innovative thinker and original in his choice of form and materials. He was among the first to integrate metal and glass in the structure and decoration of furniture and in the post-war period, Adnet began to cover his furniture with leather. To this day, he is one of the most revered French designers, whose perennial and innovative work is still highly sought after.
