Arne Jacobsen

Arne Jacobsen (1902-1971) was a Danish architect and designer who was prominent in the mid-20th century. He is best known for his innovative furniture designs, as well as his contributions to modernist architecture.

Jacobsen studied at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen, and began his career as an architect in the early 1930s. In the 1950s, he began designing furniture, creating a series of chairs that are now considered classics of mid-century modern design.

Some of his most famous designs include the "Ant" chair, the "Egg" chair, and the "Swan" chair. These pieces were designed with a focus on function, simplicity, and beauty, and they remain popular today.

Jacobsen also made significant contributions to modernist architecture, designing several important buildings in Denmark and around the world. Some of his most notable projects include the Royal Hotel in Copenhagen, the St. Catherine's College in Oxford, England, and the SAS Royal Hotel (now the Radisson Blu Royal Hotel) in Copenhagen.
