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. Still a student in 1925, Arne Jacobsen participated in
the Paris Art Deco fair, Exposition Internationale des Arts
Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes, where he won a silver
medal for his first furniture design.
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 Forum Copenhagen. The Paris chair also received attention at this project as it was displayed as a part of the interior design.
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.
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.
