The building of the Danish National Bank in central Copenhagen appears prominently in the cityscape. The building was designed by the internationally renowned Danish architect Arne Jacobsen and was inaugurated in 1978.
The building is considered one of Arne Jacobsen’s main works and was in 2009 listed as the youngest building in Denmark to date.
From the inside out, the building exudes Arne Jacobsen’s functionalism and became one of his last works. He died in 1971 after which the architects Dissing and Weitling completed the construction.
Before his death, it was Arne Jacobsen’s wish that Vibeke Klint should design a number of rugs for The Danish National Bank. As always, Vibeke Klint was inspired by the architecture in which her rugs should lie. Her rugs for The Danish National Bank are no exception. The austere minimalist design that she drew for The Danish National Bank is based on a square in one corner and is as created for the functionalist building.
The VK-1 rug has recently been set into production by NORDICMODERN in close collaboration with the Klint family as part of a collection of selected original Vibeke Klint designs.
