Besides the remarkable leather and brass details, the Adnet is also unique as the strap that holds the mirror is in direct proportion to the dimension of the mirror.
Jacobs Adnet was one of the first to integrate metal and glass in the structure and decoration of furniture. His style is the epitome of luxury. In 1950, Adnet formed a partnership with a French fashion house, where he developed a collection of leather-covered furniture and interior accessories. Accordingly, he made a round leather mirror with brass hinges.
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.
