Discreet yet voluptuous
Jacques Adnet’s style is the epitome of luxury, so his 1950’s collaboration with the exclusive French fashion house Hermés was a natural. In association with Hermés, Adnet developed a Collection of discreet yet voluptuous leather-covered furniture and interior accessories.
Jacques Adnet (1900 - 1984) was a French architect and Art Deco Modernist designer and an icon of luxurious French Modernism.
After completing his studies at the Municipal School of Design in Auxerre and the Ecole des Arts Decoratifs, Adnet established the company JJ Adnet with his twin brother Jean Adnet. In 1925, Jacques Adnet was recognized as one of the most promising young designers at both the Salon d'Automne and Les Expositions des Arts Decoratifs. As well as designing furniture and mirrors, Adnet designed apartments and offices for numerous clients, including the French president Vincent Auriol and Unesco.
