Arne Jacobsen (1902 - 1971)
When I travel, I draw and paint sketches which is great fun. And as long as you are fully aware that it has nothing to do with actual art, I think that's all right.
Sensational Danish architect and designer, Arne Jacobsen is the name behind one of the world’s most famous and beloved designs – The Egg Chair. Like a popstar with a string of number one hits, Arne Jacobsen ruthlessly watched each of his designs rise quickly as design classics.
Jacobsen’s designs continuously contained revolutionary ideas, and his pieces are still a favourite of design enthusiasts and laymen alike. Jacobsen is the recipient of countless awards, and is credited to making great impact on the Modern furniture movement.
