Mid-century mirror, mirror on the wall…

The mid-century look is a hot trend this season, so it’s timely that Danish design company GUBI has just reissued Jacques Adnet’s classic mirror from the 1950s.

I’m sure you’ll agree that this mirror by Jacques Adnet (1900 – 1984), the French architect and Art Deco modernist known for his distinctly avant-garde designs, is a work of art in itself.

Few designers have been able to create a mirror that is seen as such an iconic design. But, the beauty of Adnet’s piece, which was created in collaboration with the French fashion house in the 1950s, is that it’s so versatile and is still used today to accent a number of different interior schemes, from classic to contemporary in masculine and feminine settings.

Adnet used exotic woods, metal, leather and mirrored glass to create his exclusive design, and in its reproduction GUBI has remained faithful to the original look and detail. The leather used for the strap, which is produced and hand stitched in Italy, is tanned using vegetable tannins, while the length of the leather strap that supports the mirror is in direct proportion to the mirror diameter. Mirror, mirror on the wall, who’s the fairest of them all? The mirror itself I say.
