Fritz Jaenecke was born in Kolbitz in 1903. After his studies at the Technical University in Berlin/
Charlottenburg, he received his diploma as an architect from Hans Poelzig in 1927. 1930-1934 he lived in Berlin in a studio community with Egon Eiermann. In 1937 he emigrated to Malmö and in 1942 he became a self-employed architect here, where he gained a great deal of recognition. From 1961 to the
end of the 1960s he taught as a professor at the Technical
University in Aachen and died in Malmö in 1978.
Jaenecke designed this furniture for a well-known personality living in Berlin. In these pieces of furniture the
cooperation with Egon Eiermann is clearly visible.
