Jacques Adnet, pair of lounge chairs, leather, metal, France, late 1950s

Pair of armchairs by French designer Jacques Adnet, featuring a tubular steel frame, upholstered with patinated leather. The use of tubular steel started in the 1920s and quickly became a Futurist, almost vainglorious trope. Adnet introduced the frame in combination with leather, which was an ingenious move; maintaining the avant-garde constructions with and lean shaped, but adding a luxuriant dimension without adding volume.

Please note that re-upholstery is necessary before shipping.

Jacques Adnet (1900-1984), just like his fellows Jean Royère, André Arbus, Mathieu Matégot and Pierre Guariche, opted to take Art Deco's robust expressions and make them more simple and direct. In addition, they preserved Deco's bespoke/artisanal fabrication, not giving in to the Postwar Industrial goads.
