Arne Jacobsen

Danish, 1902 - 1971
Danish architect and designer Arne Jacobsen was one of the foremost leaders in architectural functionalism. His simple yet stylish chair designs, especially his Swan and Egg Chairs, helped establish and popularize the "Danish Modern" style of design along with the works of Borge Mogensen and Hans Wegner.
 
Prior to World War II, Jacobsen was the subject of much controversey after winning the "House of the Future" award and being commissioned to design the Stelling House on Gammeltorv (one of Copenhagen's most historic squares). He was publicly chastised for his modernist leanings on many occassion, with one newspaper ever writing that "[he] ought to be banned from architecture for life." After being forced to flee his country due to Nazi occupation during the war, Jacobsen would later return and begin to shift his eye to furniture design.
 
Drawing inspiration from the styles of designs of Le Corbusier and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and the material usage of Charles and Ray Eames, Jacobsen teamed with the furniture manufacturer Fritz Hansen to start crafting lamps and light fixtures before moving on to larger scale furniture. Interest in his sleekly designsbegan to grow in the 1950s, and his Egg, Swan, and Ant chairs continue to sell in the millions today.
