Arnes Jacobsen began producing his designs from the 1950's up until his death in the 70's. His style is very innovative and he would look beyond his limitations to produce something different. His designs are simple but functional and very modern.
I like this quote because he really enjoyed what he did and didn't find it as work. I would like it to feel the same for me when I begin working in my career. He was a really unique individual who liked to think out of the box which inspires me to get out of my comfort zone.
This piece is known as "The Ox" chair which was produced in 1966. I don't really like this one as much as the other chairs, I think it's because of how boxy it is. It feels more masculine to me and something found in an office.
This is another one of his popular designs called the "Series 7" chair. This design came out in 1955. It is the worlds most copied chair to this day.
Also a famous creation of Arne Jacobsen is this chair called "The Swan". This as well came out in 1958. He created a line of furniture specifically for the Royal Hotel which he also designed and this was one of the chairs designed for it.

This design is known as "The Egg" chair which was created in 1958. Also another one of his famous pieces. I really like this chair because of the design and the shape of it how it's curved. I would put this in a living room, it looks like a very cozy chair.
