MEET THE DESIGNER


Arne Jacobsen

Best known as one of the most celebrated Danish architects, Arne Jacobsen’s creations make a statement of style and sophistication, providing an equal balance of aesthetics and practicality. His designs were described as simple but effective, which made him an icon of Danish Modern design.

Born in 1902 in Copenhagen, Arne Jacobsen aspired to be a painter but was dissuaded by his father who steered him towards a more promising career in architecture. Before being admitted to the Architecture School at the Royal Danish Academy of the Fine Arts, he was mason exploring his interest in building. While he was still a student, Jacobsen won a silver medal for a chair design at an Art Deco fair in Paris, Exposition Internationale des Arts Decoratifs.

After completing Architecture School, Jacobsen was hired at an architecture firm. In 1929 he received an award for The House of the Future in collaboration with Flemming Lassen. Throughout the 1930’s and 1940’s, he built a plethora of buildings and homes, asserting his proclamation that he was an architect above all else. Though today he is widely recognized for his furniture designs.

In the early 1950s and up to the end of his career, Arne Jacobsen collaborated with Fritz Hansen to create some of his most recognized designs: The Ant chair, Series 7 chair, Oxford series and the Grand Prix chair, to name a few.

His most notable commissioned project is the SAS Royal Hotel built in 1959. He designed everything from the building and furniture to the ash trays in the souvenir shop. Some of his furniture designs, which are still highly sought after, were created for this project; the Egg chair, Drop chair, and Swan chair.

Arne Jacobsen’s organic approach to simplicity and functionality, paired with his perfectionist nature, made him a leading figure and an icon of the Danish Modern design movement. Today, he posthumously continues to inspire collectors, enthusiasts, architects, and designers around the world.
