About the designer,

It is said that as a child growing up in Copenhagen, Arne Jacobsen painted over the Victorian wallpaper in his bedroom. But young Arne did not cover his walls with typical childish drawings or paint the ornate wallpaper boyish blue. Instead, he decided to paint his room entirely white. His decision may seem commonplace today, but in the early twentieth century white walls were not yet in fashion. From the very beginning, Arne Jacobsen was ahead of his time.


Arne Jacobsen was born on February 11, 1902 in Copenhagen. His father, Johan Jacobsen, was a wholesaler of safety pins and press studs. His mother, Pouline Jacobsen, a bank clerk, paints floral designs in her spare time. The family lived in a typical Victorian style house. Contrary to his parents' overly decorated tastes, Arne paints his room in white.

Already as a child, through meticulous studies, he showed an extraordinary talent for drawing and depicting nature. He wants to become a painter, but his father thought architect was a wiser choice.

Jacobsen's production reflects his personality: a persistent, perfectionist modernist, for whom no detail was trivial. Like him, his work is precise and warm, Danish and universal, modern and timeless.
