Arne Jacobsen is one of the most influential designers of the second half of the 20th century and the most representative designer of Scandinavian design of the fifties and sixties. Jacobsen trained as a mason before enrolling at Danske Kongelige Kuntakademi Copenhagen, graduating in 1927.
He designed lamps, ashtrays and even cutlery. During the fifties, Jacobsen reaped considerable success as an industrial designer. Most of his designs are still in production as a sign of their timelessness.
