Modernist designer Jacques Adnet was known for his avant-garde designs with uncommon combinations of leather, metal and glass—as exhibited in his superb mid-1950s coffee table. Also influenced by the Art Deco heritage of his native France, Adnet's piece has 3 graciously curved metal legs that meet at the center. The structure supports a round glass top that is edged with a hand-crafted leather rim and the final adornment with a trio of gilded brass rings.

“I started out with two very strong designs, Bestlite—a Bauhaus collection designed in 1930—and Gubi Chair, designed in 2003” Jacob says (both available at A+R). “I felt they had something in common,” he continues. “Iconic appearance, functional design, high quality, aesthetic design language and adaptable for many different kinds of interiors. I took these values as a guideline for any new designs added to the collection ever since.”
