Arne Jacobsen October 23 2017

Considered the grandfather of modern Danish design, architect and designer Arne Jacobsen (1902 -1971) is worldwide recognised as one of the most admired and outstanding designers. His creations are some of the 20th century's most iconic classics and to this day are as functional and timeless in their design as they were 50 years ago.

One of his most famous projects was the Radisson Blue Royal Hotel (former SAS Royal Hotel) in Copenhagen. He designed everything starting from the stainless-steel cutlery to the external facade of the building. The famous Egg and Swan chairs were designed for this hotel amongst many other design classics such as AJ lamps by Louis Poulsen.

Even though Arne Jacobsen first and foremost saw himself as an architect, he might be most acknowledged for his furniture design. You can say that whatever he draw on paper, became an immediate Scandinavian Design Classic.
