Arne Jacobsen is one of the few architects really well-known for both his radical furniture designs and architecture career; SAS Royal Hotel and the National Bank are two of his most important buildings as an architect, while such items of furniture as The Egg chair, Series 7 chair,The Ant and The Swan chair have long since become icons of Danish furniture design.

Design, Modern Architecture
One of the new features of Arne Jacobsen’s furniture design were his organic lines and sculptural elements, all of which are abundantly visible in such pieces of furniture as The Swan chair and The Egg chair. Not one straight line disturbs the soft curves of these creations and this departure from straight, geometrical lines is one of the cornerstones of Arne Jacobsen’s furniture. In this sense, while the significance of Arne Jacobsen’s buildings was limited, his furniture and other design work have become national and international heritage.
