ARCHITECTURE TENDS TO CONSUME EVERYTHING ELSE IT HAS BECOME ONE'S ENTIRE LIFE
Arne Jacobsen (1902 – 1971)
Arne Jacobsen was very productive both as an architect and as a designer. The cooperation with Fritz Hansen dates back to 1934. But it was in 1952 the break-through came with the Ant. It was succeeded by the 3107 series in 1955. This propelled his and Fritz Hansen's names into furniture history. At the end of the 50s Arne Jacobsen designed the Royal Hotel in Copenhagen, and for that project the Egg, the Swan, the Swan sofa and Series 3300.
Arne Jacobsen was and is an admired and outstanding designer. While the significance of Arne Jacobsen's buildings was less appreciated, his furniture and other design work have become national and international heritage.
