Arne Jacobsen for Fritz Hansen, coffee table, plywood, Denmark, 1960s
Stunning, small coffee table designed by Arne Jacobsen. The coffee table has a sculptural, almost architectural look. This is mainly achieved by the legs that create a crossed look by overlaping each other. the table top is layed inside this frame and sticks out through a construction, which is part of the interesting design. The dark color of the wood, defines the stricked lines and architectural feel of the table even more.
Arne Jacobsen (1902-1971), originally trained as an architect is also well-known for his furniture. It was only later in his career that Jacobsen created the pieces that he is now most known for. One of Jacobsen's main aims was to reduce material input to achieve clean visual lines. Technical quality and ergonomics were, however, not affected by the reduction. What is interesting is that where he followed mainly cubist functionalism in his architecture, he nevertheless mainly preferred organic forms in the design of his furniture. What all his works have in common however is the application of the right proportions, both within a piece of furniture and in its relationship to the room.
