|Arne Jacobsen´s designs came into existence as brief sketches and were then modelled in plaster or cardboard in full size. He kept on working until his revolutionary ideas for new furniture had been realized at the utmost perfection. The "Ant" from 1952 became the starting point of his world fame as a furniture designer and was the first of a number of lightweight chairs with seat and back in one piece of moulded wood.|
Model "3100" from 1952 is commonly referred to as "The Ant". The three-legged stacking chair narks a turning point in Arne Jacobsen´s career as a furniture designer. He had found his style modern and international and yet personal. "The Ant" was the actual beginning the take-off for his main works among furniture. The chairs are today present in many museums, private homes, offices and exhibitions all over the world.
