Jacques Adnet

France (1901–1984)

Jacques Adnet is a furni­ture designer best known for his Art Deco Modernist designs and an icon of French Modernism. Known for his avant-garde designs, 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. 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.
