Arne Jacobsen Quotes

Did you know about Arne Jacobsen?

He fled Denmark rowing a small boat across Øresund to neighbouring Sweden where he would stay for the next two years. On that trip he was struck by the pioneering aesthetic of Le Corbusier's L'Esprit Nouveau pavilion. Craig Miller author of "Design 1935-1965 What Modern was" Jacobsen’s work "is an important and original contribution both to modernism and to the specific place Denmark and the Scandinavian countries have in the modern movement" and continues "One might in fact argue that much of what the modern movement stands for would have been lost and simply forgotten if Scandinavian designers and architects like Arne Jacobsen would not have added that humane element to it".

Arne Emil Jacobsen (11 February 1902 – 24 March 1971) was a Danish architect and designer.
