About the Designer
Arne Jacobsen (1902-1971) is considered to be one of the most important Scandinavian architects and designers in post-war time. He is the legendary creator of several 20th Century furniture icons, including e.g. The “Egg” chair, The “Swan” chair and the “Ant” and “Seven series” chairs. Arne Jacobsen was one of the very early modernists in Danish architecture. He was trained in the neoclassic school of the Academy of Art in Copenhagen in the 1920´s but was early open to the international modern movement. His most important commission was the SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen from 1958, for which also many of the mentioned furniture icons were designed. Jacobsen designed not only the building but also the interior, right down to the smallest details. Arne Jacobsen developed his own signature style and worked independently from 1930 when he opened his own design office. He is the designer behind many modern classics ranging from furniture and lighting to textiles and cutlery.
