Classic Danish design
Arne Jacobsen is one of the most famous Danish architects and designers. He is the creator of a large number of iconic masterpieces that are not only loved in Denmark, but also in the rest of the world.
Arne Jacobsen was born in Copenhagen in 1902 in a bourgeois family. In the 1920s, he attended the Academy of Fine Arts, School of Architecture, and subsequently he got his breakthrough as an architect with a number of architectural buildings that presented the modern lifestyle in Denmark.
Initially, Jacobsen's architecture was characterized by being free and experimental, but it gradually became more minimalist and classic during the 1950s. During this period, Arne Jacobsen designed, among other things, a large number of the design classics we know him for today. Here you can mention the world-famous chairs "Ægget" and "Svanen", but also the famous Arne Jacobsen door handle. These works were designed for the SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen in 1956.
