Arne Jacobsen is remembered for developing the Danish Modern style. In addition to his architectural work, he was one of the most important contributors to Danish design, especially as a result of the worldwide success received with simple but effective chair designs.
His break-through came in 1952 with the Ant chair and later the Series 7 in 1955. These designs propelled Arne Jacobsen into furniture history.
While the significance of Arne Jacobsen’s buildings was less appreciated, his furniture and other design work have become national and international heritage.
