SAS Hotel Room 606 [1960]

Arne Jacobsen

Imagery: Phaidon

The Scandinavian Airlines System (SAS) Hotel can be considered a seminal assemblage of the summed weight of Danish architect-designer Arne Jacobsen’s vision. Publishing house Phaidon terms the work a ‘synthesis of abstraction and naturalism joining domesticity and industry, the SAS building combined the modern, high-rise, luxurious hotel and an airline terminal in a way that had never been seen before’ and to this very day room 606 offers an unaltered, unique preservation of Jacobsen’s commission – complete with original-issue Swan and Egg Chairs.
