2002 was the centenary of Arne Jaocbsen’s birth. To celebrate the Danes enduring importance, the Museum of Modern Art Oxford presented an exhibition of his work as architect and designer.
One of Arne Jacobsen’s most famous buildings, St Catherine’s College in Oxford, is acknowledged as among the most significant buildings of the modern era to be found in Britain. As with his other buldings, St Catherine was made as a Gesamtkunstwerk, with cutlery, furniture, and lampshades being of Jacobsen’s own idiosyncratic design.
This catalogue, published on the occasion of the exhibition, contains essays by Emily King, Stephen Hodder and Lucy Dickens, with a conversation between curator Astrid Brown, Jack Lankester and Alan Tye.
