Designed in 1950 by Jacques Adnet, the Gubi Adnet Circular Mirror is an equestrian-inspired Art Deco style wall-hanging mirror that captures the essence of luxurious living.
Jacques Adnet was a renowned French Art Deco Modernist and genius of the avante-garde. The interiors he designed were favoured by the rich and powerful, including the French President. In 1925, he was recognised by both the Salon d’Automne and Les Exposition des Arts Decoratifs as the year’s most promising designer.
The Adnet circular mirror is made of glass bound with a leather hanging strap which has brass fittings. Furthermore, the strap and the size of the mirror are in direct proportion to one another, giving the whole a sculptural, eye-pleasing symmetry.
The Adnet circular mirror comes in three sizes – 45 cm diameter, 58 cm diameter or 70 cm diameter. The Italian leather framing strap is available in black or tan and is 2.3 cm wide. The mirror has a frame depth of 7 cm.
Although they have their roots in Denmark, Gubi are eclectic and intercontinental and blur the lines between past, present and future. They are fuelled by overlooked designs from the past and see themselves as treasure seekers.
The Adnet Circular mirror is great in bathrooms, halls and living rooms; and it compliments leather furniture to perfection. In short, it is a classic yet timeless collectible with an immediate hit of quality and style and a long, impressive pedigree.
