Arne Jacobsen (1902-1971) was trained as a bricklayer and graduated from The Technical Society's school in 1924 and Copenhagen Art Academy 1927. In 1928 he received the Academy's gold medal, but prior to this, when only 23, he was awarded a silver medal at the 1925 Paris World Exhibition — the first of numerous honours that became a natural accompaniment to his artistic activities, his untiring search and his brilliant conceptions, made manifest by many successes in competitions at home and abroad.View other products by Arne Jacobsen
Rosendahl was established by Erik Rosendahl, a visionary entrepreneur who recognized the opportunities for a strongly design-led brand and founded what is today one of the most modern design companies in Denmark.
Rosendahl is a source of practical designs that make day-to-day living easier and more elegant. From hand-blown glass and unique designs to innovative accessories for the dining table and the home, to professional kitchen utensils.
Thanks to Rosendahl's product development, their distinctive, stylistically consistent designs can be found in the majority of modern homes.
Rosendahl also promotes well-known design classics. For instance, Rosendahl has taken on the distribution of Kay Bojesen's much-loved toy soldiers, the distinctive teak monkey and the timeless Grand Prix cutlery.
Rosendahl's history is also closely intertwined with Yomin Yamada's Global knives, which Erik Rosendahl introduced to Scandinavia with great success. These professional knives became a best-seller, and today they can be found in many Danish homes and professional kitchens.
Rosendahl is also renowned for its collaboration with art craftswoman Lin Utzon; some of her items include the poetic, stylistically consistent Filigran range and the sculptural Lin Utzon vase created in close collaboration with Erik Rosendahl.
Last but by no means least, Rosendahl has generated enthusiasm for its functional, classic Grand Cru range of tableware, a most attractive blend of Danish and Japanese styling.
In addition, Rosendahl works closely with designer Ole Palsby, whose designs include the aesthetic Rosendahl storage jars with their simple, clean-cut lines. The timeless look of the jars, combined with their multitude of uses, makes them classic items in many homes around the world.
