Arne Jacobsen and Minimalism

The designer, Arne Jacobsen has successfully remained timeless in the many forms of design he practiced. This included his interior design, textile design, architecture, as well as his graphic design. One of his most affordable designs is his typography. The typography is sold on coffee mugs, stationary, and posters. Jacobsen’s typography is unique and has become a decorative element. It remains simple with sharp points that attract the viewer.

While Jacobsen’s work may seem contemporary he in fact worked during the 20th century around the time of World War II. His designs implemented the style of architectural functionalism.

It is interesting to see how some designers’ works have lasted through the years and have grown in worth. Jacobsen is no acceptation to this. He demonstrates minimalistic design which is what gained him his success. The work in which Jacobsen has made shows how its function is key to the design which reflects the time in which he designed. Yet, Jacobsen has successfully broken the barrier of remaining in the past and has continued to be an icon in the present.

    You are absolutely right, Arne Jacobsen’s designs are timeless. I recall having come across many of his designs when looking for inspiration on Pinterest. The most recognizable for me are his chair designs.
