This is an elegant placemat in a classic design by the iconic Danish architect. The timeless design has been selected from the surviving sketches of Arne Jacobsen, and creates a beautiful symmetry and stylish expression.
The design was launched in 2002 as a tribute to the Danish architect to mark the 100th anniversary of his birth, and serves to continue the design legacy of Arne Jacobsen in all its elegance and simplicity. The Arne Jacobsen design collection has been carefully selected together with his grandson, Tobias Jacobsen, who has also designed textiles for our collection.
Its anthracite colouring makes the placemat a dramatic and highly refined element in more formal table covering. Its oval shape softens the graphical pattern of the placemat. The placemat is also available in a rectangular version if a more rigid expression is required. Matching napkins woven in linen complete the expression.
