Arne Jacobsen (1902-1971) was revered as one of the most visionary and progressive Danish architects of his time. He was admitted to the Architecture School at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts from 1924 to 1927.
In 1929 Arne Jacobsen won a Danish Architect’s Association competition for designing the famous “House of the Future” which was built in full scale for the Housing and Building Exhibition in Copenhagen.
The Paris lounge chair was designed by Arne Jacobsen in 1929 for a competition published by The Basket Makers Association. When he later the same year exhibited with the famous “House of the Future”, the chair was displayed as a part of the interior design.
Until World War II, the Paris lounge chair was produced by Robert W. The chair is known both as Fremtidens Stol (The Chair of the Future), Skovsneglen (The Forest Snail) and the Paris Chair.
The Paris lounge chair is also available in an outdoor version, the Paris Exterior lounge chair.
St Catherine is an exclusive teak bench designed by Arne Jacobsen in 1935. The bench was designed for wholesaler Helge Wandel's villa, and when Arne Jacobsen in the late 1950s got his first major project abroad, designing St Catherine College in Oxford, the teak bench was included in the plan for the associated college park.
The Charlottenborg lounge chair was designed by Arne Jacobsen in 1936. He showcased it for the first time at the Charlottenborg spring exhibition in 1937 and since then named after the castle. The chair was originally named A.J 237 and was part of a series of original rattan chairs.
The Charlottenborg lounge chair was one of Arne Jacobsen’s own favorite lounge chairs and was a part of the interior design in his famous vacation home called ‘Knarken’ which was built in 1937.
This iconic piece is also available in an outdoor version, the Charlottenborg Exterior lounge chair.
In 1937, Arne Jacobsen extended the Charlottenborg series and managed to create the perfect lounge set that includes both a Charlottenborg coffee table and a Charlottenborg 2-seater sofa.
The Charlottenborg furniture is also available in outdoor versions, the Charlottenborg Exterior coffee table and the Charlottenborg Exterior 2-seater sofa. In the Exterior collection you also find a 3-seater sofa, the Charlottenborg Exterior 3-seater sofa.
