Arne Jacobsen & Flemming Lassen
Representatives of Danish Modernism and known for their Functionalist approach to design, Arne Jacobsen and Flemming Lassen are considered among Scandinavia's most influential architects. After setting up an office space together in the early 1930s, they conceived the award-winning “House of the Future”: a spiral-shaped home replete with a helicopter pad, a conveyor tube for mail and a kitchen stocked with ready-made meals (a rather unheard of concept at the time). They went on to design numerous other projects together and individually, which brought them international acclaim.
In 1929 Jacobsen designed the Bellevue Lamp, a Bauhaus-inspired product that signaled the dawn of Scandinavian minimalism, where graceful lines and a clean silhouette meet sculptural simplicity.
