May 29, 2019

The Danish furniture designers Frits Schlegel, Finn Juhl, Mogens Lassen and Arne Jacobsen studied architecture and became architects. Later Finn Juhl described himself as architect and self-taught designer. In Gentofte, north of Copenhagen, these four villas by the above mentioned architects document the Danish Modernism. The Schlegel and Lassen villas are build in concrete -the villas by Juhl and Jacobsen are build in brick, plastered and painted.
