The upper part of the luminaire can be “hung” on three different hooks to allow different positioning and orientation.
The high hook allows orientation for reading, an intermediate hook to illuminate for example a console and a high hook for more general lighting of the room.
The "fixing" of the handle features superb work depicting a bronze knot.
The luminaire, manufactured around 1960, is in very good condition, it has a patina of use, the lampshade is not original and will have to be redesigned according to the decor in which the lamp will be displayed.
The electrification system is original (bayonet model).
Jacques Edouard Jules Adnet was born in Châtillon-Coligny France in 1900 and died in the 16th arrondissement of Paris in 1984.
Architect and decorator, he begins his exceptional career with his twin brother, Jean and later joins Maurice Dufrène before taking direction of “La compagnie des Arts français” founded in 1919 by Süe and Mare.
La “compagnie des Arts Français”, before the arrival of Adnet was a "traditional" oriented company ... Adnet converts it into a much more modernist society and surrounds itself with many artists such as Dufy, Léger, Pascin, Chagall and numerous decorators, Jourdain, Charlotte Perriand, René Gabriel, Alexandre Noll, Serge Mouille et Paul Jouve.
Adnet’s designs are synonymous with comfort and elegance and remain today an incredible modernity.
