Artist Review: Arne Jacobsen

Arne Jacobsen (1902-71) is known as one of the most famous Danish architects and designers. He attended the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Architecture inCopenhagen. He made prototypes for furniture, textiles, wallpaper, silverware, and etc. He is remembered for developing the 'Danish Modern' style. Here are some of his most famous pieces..

Egg, 1958

Swan, 1958

Ant, 1952

His designs are simple and elegant, but what's most important is the effectiveness of the design. The simplicity and material used for the chairs is sufficient enough to form a sophisticated look. I'm most inspired by the curves of the chairs. There are no straight lines and that's what makes it innovative.
