Gubi presents New Adnet Mirrors

Adnet rec L Tan_environment_300 dpi

Following last year's reissue of French modernist icon Jacques Adnet's remarkable circular mirror, Gubi will launch another original 1950's Jacques Adnet design. Adnet Rectangulaire is also a leather trimmed mirror but rectangular in form, a contrasting yet equally striking expression of Adnet's singular design style and welcome addition to Gubi's fast growing interior accessories collection.

"I had been looking to extend Gubi's Adnet Collection for a long time… last year in a gallery, I came across this remarkable series of rectangular mirrors, similar in handwriting to the Adnet Circulaire we launched last year, yet so different too - and perfectly suited to so many uses, so many spaces.  We had to produce it!" - Jacob Gubi, CCO, Gubi

From the naturally tanned, full-grain aniline, hand-stitched leather frame to the equestrian-influenced oxidized brass rivets, Adnet Rectangulaire reflects the signature style and exceptional quality of Gubi's award-winning, Adnet Circulaire mirror that was launched in late autumn 2011.

Yet the deceptively simple, flexible, strap-free design creates a quite different aesthetic and can be displayed wall-mounted or freestanding, so lends itself to multiple new uses.

Adnet Rectangulaire will be available in black or tan full grain leather and 3 sizes: S (50 cm x 70 cm), M (65 cm x 110 cm), and L (70 cm x 180 cm). The new Adnet Collection will be available online at www.gubi.com and at selected retailers from January 2013.

Timeless, elegant, sophisticated and now available in an extended range of shapes and sizes, Gubi's functional, decorative Adnet mirrors will enhance a wide range of interior spaces and all manner of interior styles.

The new Adnet Rectangulaire will be available online at www.gubi.com and at selected retailers from January 2013.

The Adnet Collection

Art Deco ‎is an eclectic artistic and design style that began in Paris in the 1920s and flourished internationally throughout the 1930s, into the World War II era.

Jacques Adnet is a furniture designer best known for his Art Deco Modernist designs and an icon of French Modernism.  Known for his avant-garde designs, Adnet was one of the first to integrate metal and glass in the structure and decoration of furniture. His style is the epitome of luxury.

In 1950, Adnet formed a partnership with the French fashion house, Hermes, where he developed a collection of leather-covered furniture and interior accessories. Accordingly, he made a round leather mirror with brass hinges. Besides the remarkable leather and brass details, the mirror is also unique as the strap that holds the mirror is in direct proportion to the dimension of the mirror.
