ADNET RECTANGULAIRE MIRROR
BY JACQUES ADNET
Few designers have succeeded in making a mirror a design icon but Jacques Adnet was the exception. Today, the elegant leather mirror that Adnet designed in 1950 provides inspiration for designers all over the world.
The Adnet Rectangulaire Mirror originates from the partnership of the designer Jaques Adnet and a famous French fashion house in 1950’s.
By applying the fashion house's knowledge and high quality of leather to Jacques Andet's innovative thinking and design vision, the two parts created a series of remarkable interior designs. Among them were the Adnet Rectangulaire leather mirror studded with burnished brass rivets on the edges, a characteristic detailing of Adnet's work.
Simplicity of design combined with the warmth of leather and finest detailing
The Adnet Rectangulaire Mirror
The Adnet Rectangulaire Mirror in three sizes serves equally well in a hallway, bathroom and dressing room, either horizontal, vertical, mounted to the wall or spontaneously leaned against it.
It adds depth, reflects light, expands horizons and adds a magical allure.
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.
