Arne Jacobsen is born on February 11, 1902 in Copenhagen. His father, Johan Jacobsen, is a wholesale trader in safety pins and snap fasteners. His mother, Pouline Jacobsen, a bank clerk, paints floral motifs in her spare time. The family lived in a typical Victorian style home. As a contrast to his parents’ overly decorated taste, Arne paints his room in white.
 
Background & school relations
He met the Lassen brothers at Nærum Boarding School: later, Flemming Lassen was to become his partner in a series of architectural projects. Arne Jacobsen is a restless pupil, always up to pranks, with a self-deprecating humour. Already as a child, he showed an extraordinary talent for drawing and depicting nature through scrupulous studies. He wants to be painter, but his father felt that architect was a more sensible choice.
 
The Pleasant and the necessary trips abroad
Jacobsen’s travelling begin already in his twenties, when he went to sea to New York. Then followed an apprenticeship as a bricklayer in Germany and a series of study and drawing excursions to Italy. Jacobsen produced some of his finest watercolours during this period, capturing atmospheres and shapes accurately and carefully. From the beginning of his career, Jacobsen turned his gaze abroad, without abandoning Danish traditions.
 
Arne Jacobsen behind the design
Jacobsen production reflects his personality: an insistent, perfectionist modernist, to whom no detail was trivial, although the main picture was basically black/white and unambiguous. On the other hand, the nature-loving botanist and jovial family man: like him, his work is precise and warm, Danish and universal, modern and timeless.

White is a type of leather of the finest quality oxhide and combines a natural look with the practical. The leather is semi-aniline and full grain, which means that the natural surface structure has been preserved. The leather has been treated with a light finish, making the hide more resilient and easier to look after. White is soft to the touch and offers excellent sitting comfort. The surface of the lighter colours may seem more concealed as many pigments are often used in the process. White is also more susceptible to dirt than other colours.
Elegance is an exquisite type of leather of the finest quality European oxhide. It has an exclusive and natural look and is soft and pleasant to the touch. Elegance is aniline leather and is chrome tanned but then subsequently vegetable tanned, which gives the leather greater firmness. This type of leather has a natural and raw surface, allowing the leather to breathe and offers excellent sitting comfort as well as a feeling of exclusivity. The leather is full grain, which means that its natural surface structure has been preserved and all natural markings are visible. Natural markings are the hallmarks of the animal’s active life and give the piece of furniture a unique sense of character. Elegance leather varies in colour from hide to hide and acquires a beautiful, lighter patina with use and exposure to sunlight.
Classic is a durable and very user-friendly type of leather, giving a more uniform look on upholstered furniture. Classic is pigmented and has a strong surface finish, making the leather resilient to dirt and light exposure so that the leather maintains its looks over time. The surface has a slight grain, which means that the natural structure is visible. This gives a very pure expression, almost without visible natural markings.
Basic is a flexible and smooth looking type of leather and is user-friendly and economic. This type of leather is made of European hides, is pigmented and has been treated with a heavy surface finish, which makes it very durable. The surface is buffed and has a smooth look with a fine grain print. Basic is flexible, robust and easy to look after as well as being greaseproof. The leather is soft and pleasant to the touch and offers excellent sitting comfort. It has a high level of colourfastness.

The 3300™ series was created for the SAS Terminal at the Royal Hotel in Copenhagen, one of Arne Jacobsen’s architectural masterpieces. In harmony with Jacobsen’s architectural work at that time, the 3300 series is cool and formal. Furthermore, the 3300 series exudes Jacobsen’s unfailing sense of line and proportion and his ability to design everlasting classics. Arne Jacobsen got the inspiration for the 3300 series from a sofa, which he had designed especially for his own home in the 1940s. The 3300 series forms an elegant contrast to the organic shapes of the Egg and Swan chairs, also designed especially for the Royal Hotel. The 3300 series consists of a 1-seater easy chair as well as a 2-seater and 3-seater sofa and is sublime for waiting and lounge areas as well as for private homes. The series 3300 is available in various types of leather and fabric upholstery and always with a chromed base.
