Arne Jacobsen
(1902 – 1971)


The Danish architect and designer was trained as a stonemason before studying architecture at the Kongelige Danske Kunstakademie in Copenhagen where he stayed until 1927. While still a student, Arne Jacobsen showed a chair he had designed at the important Paris "Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes" in 1925 and was awarded a silver medal for it. In 1952 Arne designed the "Ant" (Model No. 3100), a chair whose name was inspired by the ‘nipped in waist of the back’ as well as ‘its thin tubular steel legs’. In 1955 Arne Jacobsen designed a similar chair for Series 7 (Model No. 3107), which was one of the most commercially successful lines in chairs ever produced. It was launched in beech, black and white. In 1958 Arne Jacobsen designed, for the interior of the Royal SAS Hotel in Copenhagen, the "Egg" and "Swan" chairs, which today are numbered among the design classics of the 20th century. Between 1956 and 1965 Arne Jacobsen was a professor of architecture at the Skolen for Brugskunst in Copenhagen.
