World-famous for his iconic chairs, Danish architect Arne Jacobsen (1902-1971) was also a passionate photographer and painter, involved in the world of art, where he found inspiration and new methods for developing architecture.

This book, the most comprehensive on Jacobsen to date, looks at previously unknown aspects of his life and work. It shows how art played a decisive role in his professional and personal life, placing him at the heart of Europe's post-war avant-garde art scene.

By shedding new light on certain aspects of his creative life, the book challenges preconceptions of Jacobsen as a modernist iconoclast, positioning him instead as a creative innovator who worked closely with materials to transform existing aesthetics. It also shows Jacobsen's crucial role in defining the Danish and Nordic aesthetic of wellbeing, and features famous and lesser-known works by Jacobsen, including chairs, textile designs, watercolours, lighting and architectural models, as well as hundreds of previously unpublished private photographs of Jacobsen and his many creations.
