The Adnet Coffee Table was originally designed by French Modernist Jacques Adnet (1901 - 1981) in the 1950’s.
Adnet was always ahead of contemporary trends and became famous for his avant-garde designs and unusual combination of leather, metal and glass. The iconic Adnet Coffee Table exemplifies everything the French architect and interior designer stands for and perfectly merges his Art Deco style with his strong commitment to functionalist principles.
Placed on three soft curved metal legs, elegantly meeting in the heart of the table, the round glass top is edged with a hand-made leather rim and adorned with three gilded brass rings. The timeless design of the Adnet Coffee Table embodies modern materials and superb craftsmanship and adds a distinctive
value to any home or professional space.
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. 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.
