Arne Jacobsen (1902-1971) was a leading architect and designer, best known for his modernistic architecture and iconic chair designs. Born in Copenhagen, he studied at the prestigious Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, graduating in 1927. While still a student, he won his first award for a chair design, a silver medal at the Paris Art Deco fair. In 1930, he opened his own studio, starting a prolific career that would ultimately influence generations of designers and architects. Arne Jacobsen’s vision focused on a strict consideration for detail, regardless of the size of the project. From landmark buildings to tableware, his designs master proportion, with even the smallest detail becoming a crucial component of the entire design. Arne Jacobsen’s hugely productive career influenced many creative fields, from architecture to furniture, lighting, and product design. Among his most renowned designs are the Egg and Swan chairs, Stelton’s Cylinda Line, and the historic SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen, considered by many to be the world’s first designer hotel.
