Furniture Design

Jacobsen, Arne (1902 - 1971)

The Danish architect and designer combined modernist principles and a Nordic love for nature with an obsession in finding the perfect proportions. His creations feature simple, elegant and functional forms associated to natural and cosy materials that bear a contradictory timeless futuristic allure. His primary concern was to ensure his designs could be use in the most logical way possible: dictating a whole instinctive experience.
