Vintage Jacobsen, model 3103
Vintage Arne Jacobsen model 3103 in teak with steel legs.
One of the renowned series of designs by Arne Jacobsen (1902 - 1971) in the 1950's for Fritz Hansen. Ground breaking design.
For more than half of the twentieth century, Arne Jacobsen’s ideas shaped the landscape of Danish design, rippling out from Scandinavia to influence architects and designers around the world. He managed to direct projects ranging from complex buildings like Danmarks National Bank to detailed challenges as humble as a special teaspoon for his cutlery set, working with a relatively small studio staff driven by an unquenchable need to create.
Jacobsen’s creative process centered on his strict consideration of detail. He brought his visions to life for patrons and builders with scrupulous, hand-painted watercolours. In any given year, Jacobsen managed to design what others might be happy to produce in five. (Text - Fritz Hansen)
