Kubeflex summer house

Kubeflex summer house
Architect: Arne Jacobsen
Address: Æblehaven 23, Kolding, Danemark
Investor:Høm Typehuse

Arne Jacobsen's prototype summer house Kubeflex, the only of its kind, has been re-established at Trapholt and furnished with Arne Jacobsen design. Our guests can expect a unique experience of the internationally known architect.
In 1968-70 Arne Jacobsen developed the house in cooperation with Høm Typehuse, and it was introduced for the first time at the standard house fair Archibo in 1970.
ith the cubic modules of 10 square meters as the starting point Kubeflex was thought to be a flexible system where units could be combined and more units added if needed.
A house that could be changed according to the owner's needs. However, neither the time nor the market was ready for such a radical and architectural experiment and Kubeflex was never put into production.

For many years the Kubeflex house was placed at Sjaelland where it functioned as the Jacobsen's summerhouse. Only the most enthusiastic architects have known its existence, and over the years some technically interested people have contacted the family in order to see this radical example of a modern residence.
Among the interior there are examples of Arne Jacobsen's design, e.g. the fitting series Vola and the coffee set Cylinda Line.
With Kubeflex Trapholt has acquired a unique attraction, that beautifully supports the extensive collection of furniture by Danish architects and designers.
