Arne Jacobsen’s Modern Denmark

Arne Jacobsen is an icon of 20th-century modern Scandinavian design. He has made furniture design his central focus; his Egg chair and Series7 chair have stood the test of time and are popular all over the world. But Jacobsen's designs also include many buildings— from the 1929 design of the House of the Future and the iconic SAS high-rise hotel in Copenhagen to schools, town halls and other public buildings. The documentary charts Jacobsen's varied career and, through interviews with experts and former colleagues in the backdrop of his interiors, illustrates the personality of this pioneer whose work has always sought solutions to the issue of affordable quality housing and living.
