The Paris lounge chair was the first chair designed by Arne Jacobsen, even before graduating as an architect. In 1925, the Paris lounge chair was presented at the Paris Art Deco exhibition, where it won a silver medal. On that trip, Jacobsen was struck by the pioneering aesthetic of Le Corbusier's L'espirit Nouveau pavilion, which inspired his subsequent work. In 1929, the 27-year-old Jacobsen won the first prize for the ultramodern concept of "The House of the Future," at the Building and Housing Exhibition of the Academic Architects' Association in Copenhagen. The exhibition established him as one of the most visionary and progressive Danish architects and designers of his time. The Paris lounge chair was part of the inventory of "The House of the Future," which is why it is also called the Chair of the Future.
