Jakobsson was active between the 1950s and '70s—in the golden age of Scandinavian design—and he is best remembered for his softly glowing but impressive lighting designs, which were inspired by the Danish lighting master Poul Henningsen and the Finnish icon Alvar Aalto. Though lesser known he created a range of pendants, floor lamps, wall lamps, and table lamps that showcase a penchant for diverse materials and forms, as well as a deep understanding of lighting effects.
