Arne Jacobsen's SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen, Denmark is one of the architectural treasures of the world and a statement of design from an insightful, talented designer. From the architecture to the space age cutlery, every detail was attended to by the hand of the architect / designer to create an immersive experience in what we would now call a 'design hotel'.
Furniture and objects which were designed for the interior were later put into mass production and now feature in museum collections around the world. Some of his most memorable furniture works included the Swan and Egg Chair, featuring bold organic shapes and utilising new technology to create the unique shape.
Jacobsen had been involved in landscape design and saw the space as an indoor garden. The green colour also connects it to the building Jacobsen was inspired by, Lever Hourse (1952) designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill.
