Arne Jacobsen is considered the master of Danish Modernism. Educated at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Architecture, Jacobsen helped defined the mantra for Modernism with his clean, pure lines, coupled with classic craftsmanship. One of his most celebrated buildings is the SAS Royal Hotel from 1960, now called the Radisson Blu Royal Hotel. Jacobsen designed every detail from sculptural furnishings, such as his elegant Swan™ and Egg™ chairs to the lighting, textiles, ashtrays and cutlery.
As an architect and industrial designer, Jacobsen always strove to achieve grace and cohesion. Starting with the functional purpose, which led to radically simplified designs with an inherent beauty.
