Arne Jacobsen

Arne Jacobsen (1902-1971) is one of the most famous and most loveable Danish architects and designers.

Educated at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Architecture in Copenhagen, professor at the Academy (1956-65).

Today, Arne Jacobsen is remembered primarily for his simple but effective furniture designs. However, he believed he was first and foremost an architect, well-known for his contribution to architectural functionalism. He never used the word 'designer', notoriously disliking it.

His way into product design came through his interest in Gesamtkunst and most of his designs which later became famous in their own right were created for architectural projects. Most of his furniture designs were the result of a cooperation with the furniture manufacturer Fritz Hansen with which he initiated a collaboration in 1934 while his lamps and light fixtures were developed with Louis Poulsen.

It was during the 1950s that his interest in furniture design peaked.
