A beautiful pair of rare and timeless elegance.
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. During the thirties, Adnet starts to work with glass and metal.
