About Arne Jacobsen
As a child growing up in Copenhagen, it’s said that Jacobsen painted over the Victorian wallpaper in his bedroom. Young Arne didn’t cover his walls with typical childish drawings or paint the ornate wallpaper boyish blue – he decided to paint his room entirely white. This decision may seem typical today, but in the early twentieth century white walls were not yet in fashion. From the very beginning, Jacobsen was ahead of his time.
Jacobsen’s creative process centered on his strict consideration of detail. For more than half of the twentieth century, his ideas shaped the landscape of Danish design, rippling out from Scandinavia to influence architects and designers around the world.
