Arne Jacobsen (b. 1902-1971) is one of the grandfathers of modern Danish furniture and the
minimalist Danish style. While Jacobsen was also a successful architect, he is best remembered for his simple, yet elegant and functional chair designs. The cooperations between Arne Jacobsen and Fritz Hansen dates back to 1934, but it wasn’t until 1952 that jacobsen made a break-through with the Jacobsen Ant Chair. The Jacobsen Series 7 Chair designed by Fritz Hansen quickly followed in 1955, propelling Jacobsen and Hansen’s names into furniture history.
