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.
