DescriptionArne Emil Jacobsen (born February 11, 1902 in Copenhagen, died March 24, 1971 in Copenhagen) was a Danish architect and designer who helped to introduce modernism in Denmark. He has an international reputation and is one of Denmark's most famous designers. Arne Jacobsen fled to Sweden in 1943 together with thousands of other Danish Jews and stayed there for the end of the war. He is today internationally known and recognized especially for his chairs: The Seven, the Ant, the Swan and the Egg. Arne Jacobsen was educated at the Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen, where he taught in 1956-1965 as a professor of building art inspired by Le Corbusier. In the mid-1990s, there was a renewed interest in modernism's furniture art and Danish design in Denmark and internationally. This led to an increasing demand for Arne Jacobsen's furniture and art-industrial production. Arne Jacobsen is buried at Ordrup Cemetery. After his death in 1971, Arne Jacobsen's drawing office has been continued by the Dissing + Weitling studio.
