Arne Jacobsen (11 February 1902 – 24 March 1971) was a Danish architect and designer, exemplar of the 'Danish Modern' style. In addition to his architectural work he created a number of highly original chairs and other furniture. Jacobsen was a student at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen. He was granted his professional qualification in 1927. Jacobsen is, perhaps, best known for the Model 3107 chair (1955), also referred to as the 'Number 7' chair. It is said to have sold over 5 million copies. This chair is, itself, probably best known for being the prop used to hide Christine Keeler's nakedness in the 'iconic' photograph of her taken by Lewis Morley in 1963. Morley just happened to use a chair that he had in the studio, which turned out to have been a copy of Jacobsen's design. Since then 'Number 7' chairs have been used for many similar portraits imitating the pose. His other visible contribution to pop culture in the media is his flatware design, with right and left-handed spoons, in the movie 2001: A Space Odyssey. It was selected for the film because of its 'futuristic' appearance.
