Richly illustrated with almost 500 photographs and drawings, Room 606 - the SAS house and Arne Jacobsen's other work guides the reader through the Danish architect and designer, Arne Jacobsen's definitive masterpiece in microcosm: Royal Hotel - then the SAS hotel - in the middle of Copenhagen. And thus also the hotel's room 606, which is the only one that has been preserved completely original in design and furnishings from 1960, when the hotel was completed.
The SAS house - the combined luxury hotel and satellite airport terminal, designed for the Scandinavian Airlines System (SAS) - became the most complete work of Jacobsen's career. Here he utilized the full range of his talents as a designer of furniture, lamps, textiles, gardens, letters and tableware. As the fragment that encapsulates the entire building, Room 606 acts as a lens to reconstruct Jacobsen's masterpiece in words and images.
The author is the New York-based architect, Michael Sheridan - an internationally recognized researcher in modern Danish architecture and design. Among other things, Sheridan has written about Louisiana in "Louisiana: Architecture and Landscape" (2017).
