Born in 1900, Jacques Adnet was an Art Deco furniture designer, architect and interior designer.

From 1928 to 1960, Adnet directed La Compagnie des Arts Français which had been founded by Sue et Mare.

His team of decorators included Francois Jourdain, Charlotte Perriand and Georges Jouve.

Adnet conceived a modernist, industrially produced and solidly constructed furniture in a plain Art Deco style. He also linked tradition and modernity, defining himself as ‘’innovative and classical, the champion of a tradition looking forwards.’’
