Renowned across the globe as one of the driving forces behind modern Danish design, Arne Jacobsen was a perfectionist known for his simple, minimalist designs. Celebrated for his architecture and furniture designs alike, Jacobsen lent an unprecedented humane touch to Scandinavian design and remains beloved today.
Originally training at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts where he studied architecture under the tutelage of Kay Fisker and Kaj Gottlob, Arne Jacobsen was initially influenced by the rationalist work of the architects Mies van der Rohe and Walter Gropius. Going on to design ultra-modern buildings such as the Bellevue Teatret near Copenhagen, the National Bank of Denmark and the Royal Danish Embassy in London, Jacobsen eventually turned his skilled hand to furniture design in the 1950s.
Inspired by the bent plywood designs of Charles and Ray Eames, Arne Jacobsen designed the iconic Ant Chair in 1951 and the Series 7 Chair followed in quick succession. Going on to create the legendary Egg and Swan Chairs for Copenhagen’s SAS Royal, his designs still garner admiration across the world today. True icons of mid-century Danish design, Arne Jacobsen’s creations are displayed in the permanent collections at the Vitra Design Museum in Basel, New York’s MoMA and London’s V&A.
