Craft meets art. Function meets form. The material is respected and the potential is revealed. This is Nordic tradition and this is the heritage that is cherished and kept. &Tradition aims to bridge the values of solid handcraft to contemporary design. &Tradition's collection covers iconic designs and undiscovered gems from the masters of yesterday, and also features new works from leading designers of today and the talent of tomorrow.
Arne Jacobsen (1902-1971) was trained as a bricklayer and graduated from The Technical Society's school in 1924 and Copenhagen Art Academy 1927. In 1928 he received the Academy's gold medal, but prior to this, when only 23, he was awarded a silver medal at the 1925 Paris World Exhibition — the first of numerous honours that became a natural accompaniment to his artistic activities, his untiring search and his brilliant conceptions, made manifest by many successes in competitions at home and abroad.View other products by Arne Jacobsen
