Jaques Adnet was born in 1900 in Burgundy, he was a French architect and designer and during his lifetime he was considered one of the leading avant-garde designers, often associated with the Art Deco style but Adnet's commitment to functionalist principles and his propensity for essential forms, make his work fall even under the modernist style. Jaques Adnet studied at the École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs in Paris. At the beginning of the 1920s, he opened with his twin brother Jean, the design studio, JJ Adnet. Until 1959 he was responsible for design for Süe et Mare's Compagnie des Arts Français (CAF) where he formed a team of artists and designers who share his approaches: he collaborates with Francis Jourdain, Georges Jouve, Serge Mouille, Alexandre Noll and Charlotte Perriand. In 1948, Adnet assumed the post of president of Le Salon des Artistes Décorateurs. In the late 1940s, he began working with Hermès, designing luxury furniture. When the Compagnie des Arts Français closed in 1959, Adnet became director of the École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs. Among the most famous style objects designed by Adnet we recall the Quadro lamp, an icon lamp from the Classic collection created for Lumer Center. The Quadro lamp is characterized by its tubular brass shape with electroplated Palladio plating, the sandblasted acrylic diffusers and the black marquina marble base.
