Spectacular and very recognizable ‘spider web’ coffee table designed by Jacques Adnet and manufactured in his atelier in France 1950. This striking coffee table with signature bamboo leather wrapping is a characteristic and recognizable piece on its own. Jacques Adnet already designing for several years before he started to leather wrap his furniture, gotten already famous in the Art Deco period, being highly recognized again for that new and unique design. This specific coffee table has an interesting shape which looks like a spider web with nine feet all connected with each other due to straight bars and also a big ring that finishes the table and keeps the glass top in place. The entire table is wrapped in black leather with beautiful hand stitching and brass rings in between the stitched parts and also nice solid brass feet which have a nice patina. A nice detail is the brass star in the centre of the table which is nicely visible through the glass top. This is a very important piece from the oeuvre by Jacques Adnet, for that reason a similar model appears on the front page of The Jacques Adnet book written by Alain-Rene Hardy and Gaelle Millet.  The table is in very good original condition with a gentle patina and age-related wear to the leather and brass. The glass top was replaced so this is in excellent condition. Have a look at our other pieces by Jacques Adnet, we always have some pieces available in our collection.

 

Jacques Adnet (1900-1984) was a French modernist designer, architect and interior designer. He was known for his furniture designs in leather. During the 1950s, he created a distinctive and modern style of furniture and concentrated on the numerous commissions he received, such as the decoration of the private apartments of the President at the Elysée Palace or the meeting room of the UNESCO headquarters in Paris. From 1959 until 1970 he was the director of École nationale supérieure des arts décoratifs in Paris. He left a lasting legacy in his influence of post war French modernism and died in 1984.
