Arne Jacobsen 1902-1971

22Feb10

When I was a kid, I thought that Denmark was known only for Lego. As an adult, I know it as the  land of great design. One of the best known Danish architect/furniture designers is Arne Jacobsen. Have a look at this footage of his work and see how much he has shaped the design we think is so relevant today.

    It really is amazing how much of today’s great design, has been influenced by the past. Another classic example is Dieter Rams and Apple (Jonathan Ive).

    Maybe more amazing is how many get design wrong (bad design) – when the foundations are already there.
