For more than half the 20th century, the architect and designer Arne Jacobsen (1902-1971) was the driving force of Danish design and architecture. Today, over 45 years following his death, his work is still considered the epitome of Danish design, both within Denmark and by the world outside it. Primarily an architect, Jacobsen's design ethos of seeing a finished house as dependent on every detail within it being in place moved him into furniture, lighting, textiles and products.
One of the most distinguished examples of Jacobsen's total-approach thinking is the SAS Royal Hotel Copenhagen, which opened in 1961, and in which he designed everything; from the iconic Egg and Swan chairs to his straight-lined stainless steel cutlery, to the d line AJ lever handle, designed around the shape of a palm's grip. The d line Arne Jacobsen Collection includes this handle, as well as the designer's simple thumb turns and toilet indicators.
"I do not feel certain until I have confronted my initial solution with other solutions, although in fact the first solution often proves to be the right one” — Arne Jacobsen.
