Adnet Round Mirror - Jacques Adnet, 1950
Art Deco is a design style that began in Paris in the 1920s and flourished internationally throughout the 1930s and into the World War II era. Jacques Adnet was a furniture designer best known for his Art Deco Modernist designs and as an icon of French Modernism. Regarded for his avant-garde designs, Adnet was one of the first to integrate metal and glass into the structure and decoration of furniture.
In 1950, Adnet formed a partnership with the French fashion house, Hermès, where he developed a collection of leather-covered furniture and interior accessories. Accordingly, he made a round leather mirror with brass hinges. Besides the remarkable leather and brass details, the mirror is also unique as the strap that holds the mirror is in direct proportion to the dimension of the mirror.
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. In 1925, 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 and Unesco.
