|Arne Jacobsen (1902 –1971) is one of the most influential Danish architects and designers of the 20th century. He graduated from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Architecture in Copenhagen, where he was also a professor of architecture for a long period.|
Arne Jacobsen put his modernist stamp on architecture and design for more than 50 years – not only in Denmark but also internationally. His output was enormous, originating in a philosophy of creating total concepts, where everything was thoroughly designed, with a common thread running through all his work – buildings, furniture and other interior decor. Arne Jacobsen’s productions are more relevant than ever – and have enjoyed a strong revival over the last 20 years. He embodies the balancing act of elite creator and household name.
