Description

The Danish architect Arne Jacobsen (1902-1972) established his international reputation primarily in furniture design, creating chairs that were among the world's best-selling pieces of designer furniture in the latter half of the 20th century: The Ant, The Egg, The Swan. Jacobsen also ranks as a master of modern architecture through works such as the Bellavista housing complex, Århus City Hall, the Søholm row houses, Munkegård Elementary School, Rødovre City Hall, the SAS Royal Hotel, and St. Catherine's college at Oxford. His work with design encompassed everything from AJ flatware to Cylinda-Line hollowware.

This book, the first full-length study of Arne Jacobsen's work, its time and context, covers it all, from his early Neo-Classical buildings to the late Modern monumentality of the National Bank of Denmark in Copenhagen. It also provides a general introduction to the ideas and approaches that shaped the phenomenon we call Scandinavian Modern.

The book conveys to the reader an appreciation of Jacobsen and his work as an architect. In the 1920s, the press described Arne Jacobsen as the "leading representative" of functionalism and as "the Danish Corbusier". Ethereal elegance was Jacobsen's hallmark throughout his career; for example his staircases, whose light construction and suspension seem to defy gravity. All Jacobsen's significant works are described in this book. Among the works studied are Stelling's house, the town halls, the SAS Hotel and the Danish Central Bank. Jacobsen worked as an architect and designer for almost 50 years. During this period, his professional range embraced, among other things furniture, textiles, wallpaper, lamps, porcelain, hollowware, and steel.
