Arne Jacobsen (1902-1971) was one of the immortal founding fathers of great post-war Danish design. His sober approach to modernism, typically punctuated, conditioned all the generations of designers that followed and laid the foundations for a style appreciated all over the world. He always considered himself first of all as an architect: his products were in fact created for a specific project, and only later destined for mass production. His most famous project was the creation of the SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen, of which he took care not only of the architecture, but also of every detail of the interior design, personally designing the furnishings, lamps and even cutlery. It was on this occasion that products such as the Egg armchair were created, perhaps the most famous and iconic seat of all time, still made today by Fritz Hansen, or the AJ lamp, later a great bestseller for the Louis Poulsen company. He also experimented with the design of everyday objects, for brands such as Georg Jensen and Stelton, but also and above all of chairs. The models made with Fritz Hansen revolutionized the design of the modern chair; according to his former collaborator Knud Holscher Jacobsen "he designed the chairs as Matisse painted the pictures - freely and with pleasure".
