Jacques Adnet (1900-1984) was a furniture designer known for his contribution to French Modernism. His clean lines and simple forms were rendered in glass, metal, leather, and wood to create iconic interior décor with an unadorned Art Deco style. Born on April 20, 1900 in Chatillon-Coligny, France, he studied architecture under Charles Louis Genuys at the École des Arts Décoratifs in 1916. From 1923 until 1928, he worked with his twin brother, under Jean Adnet, as Jean & Jacques Adnet. Together they would exhibit at the Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes in 1925, where the term Art Deco is said to have first been coined. Jacques went on to direct La Compagnie des Arts Français until its closure in 1959, collaborating with Charlotte Perriand, Francis Jourdain, and others who shared his radical approach to design. Adnet died on October 29, 1984 in France at the age of 84.
