In 1950, Jacques Adnet formed a partnership with a famous French fashion house, where he developed a collection of discreet yet voluptuous leather-covered furniture and interior accessories.
Known for being an innovative thinker, Adnet was one of the first designers to combine leather with glass. Accordingly, he designed the elegant, distinctive round leather mirror with equestrian inspired detailing - the Adnet Circulaire Mirror. Besides the remarkable leather and burnished brass details, the mirror in three sizes is also unique as the strap holding the mirror is in direct proportion to the dimension of it.
The timeless Adnet Circulaire Mirror adds a sculptural value to any hallway, bathroom or living room and the three sizes can advantageously be combined to create an outstanding expression.
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.
