Jacques Adnet

Jacques Adnet (1900-1944) is a great French decorator and has largely marked his influence on design between the 20s and 40s.

Known for his contribution to Art Décoratif, Jacques Adnet began his career creating ceramics with his twin brother.

However, he really made a name for himself when he became the head of the Compagnie des arts français founded in 1919 by Louis Süe and André Mare. This period, which was very important for French creation, was the period of Modernism, building bridges between design and technological inventions. He claims the use of chromed metal, glass from Saint-Gobain, etc..

After the war, Jacques Adnet took refuge in a neoclassicism in vogue, making links with artists like Alberto and Diego Giacometti or Paul Belmondo. The furniture is made of precious wood and also uses the living material of lacquer.
