Arne Jacobsen is one of Denmark's most famous and prominent furniture designers and architects. Between 1924 and 1927, he studied at the "Kunstakademiets Arkitektskole" in Copenhagen and was later employed at Paul Holsoe's architectural office.
Jacobsen is considered one of the leading representatives of functionalism; he believed that architecture and interior design should work together and complement each other. Several famous Danish architects and designers began their careers at Jacobsen, including Hans Wegner. Jacobsen also collaborated with Fritz Hansen and created the iconic design classics "The Ant", "The Egg", "The Seven", "The Swan", the 3300 series, and the AJ lamps. He has also designed cutlery for Georg Jensen.
