Arne Jacobsen (1902 – 1971) “The Swan and Egg Chairs”

Today, Arne Jacobsen is remembered primarily for his furniture designs. However, he believed he was first and foremost an architect.  A major source of inspiration stemmed from the bent plywood designs of Charles and Ray Eames. He was also influenced by the Italian design historian Ernesto Rogers, who had proclaimed that the design of every element was equally important “from the spoon to the city” which harmonized well with his own ideals.
