A proponent of Functionalism and Modernism who was simply known for his avant-garde design and his basic, but wildly well-known chair styles. He was an apprentice mason before getting into the Architecture College in the Royal Danish Academy of Good Arts where he was mentored from the famous Kay Fisker and Kaj Gottlob from 1924 until 1927. He was granted a metallic medal for seat design in the 1925 Paris Artwork Deco reasonable, Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes. He and Flemming Lassen earned the Danish Architect’s Association competition in 1929 for his or her design of the home into the future, that was exhibited in Copenhagen’s Discussion board. He was created into a rich Jewish family surviving in Copenhagen. He wished to be considered a painter, but his dad thought it even more practical for him to go after architecture. He ceased working during Globe Battle II to get into exile due to his Jewish history. He was influenced by architect Le Corbusier.
