Room 606: The SAS House and the Work of Arne Jacobsen

By Michael Sheridan.

Room 606: The SAS House and the Work of Arne Jacobsen

An updated, rewritten and expanded edition of the cult classic exploring Jacobsen's midcentury design through the microcosm of a single hotel room

In the center of Copenhagen, on the sixth floor of the Royal Hotel, Room 606 preserves the definitive masterwork of the Danish architect and designer Arne Jacobsen, in microcosm. Room 606 is the only surviving interior of the SAS House; the combined luxury hotel and satellite air terminal that Jacobsen designed for the Scandinavian Airlines System (SAS) and completed in 1960.
The SAS House was the most complete commission of Jacobsen’s career, in which he exercised the full range of his talents as a designer of furniture, lamps, textiles, gardens, tableware and graphics. As the fragment that encapsulates the basic ideas of the whole building, Room 606 provides a lens for reconstructing Jacobsen’s vanished masterwork in words and images.
Richly illustrated with nearly 500 photographs and drawings, this book guides the reader on a virtual tour through the Royal Hotel and SAS Air Terminal as they stood in 1960. Along the way, the author reveals the connections between the SAS House and Jacobsen’s earlier buildings and objects. As a result, the tour that begins in Room 606 provides a general introduction to Jacobsen’s career.
Based on his ongoing study of modern Nordic architecture, Michael Sheridan has developed ideas established in his 2003 cult classic—also titled Room 606 and long out of print—to arrive at a fresh perspective on Arne Jacobsen’s life’s work. Using new text and images, Sheridan reveals the essence of Jacobsen’s creative practice, in which he employed technology to heighten the presence of nature.
New York–based architect Michael Sheridan is an internationally recognized authority on modern Danish architecture and design. His earlier books on those subjects include Landmarks: The Modern House in Denmark (2014) and Louisiana: Architecture and Design (2017).

Midcentury Modern bliss in 'Room 606'

Featured spreads are from Room 606: The SAS House and the Work of Arne Jacobsen, Strandberg Publishing’s gorgeous updated edition of the cult classic architecture monograph exploring in fascinating detail a single room of what is now the Royal Hotel Copenhagen. An architectural landmark, Room 606 was originally part of Jacobsen’s 1960 masterwork, SAS House luxury hotel and air terminal. “The SAS House was the central work of Jacobsen’s career—a comprehensive commission that allowed him to design every part of the building and interiors, from chairs, lamps, textiles and tableware to the hotel logo and the lettering above the entrance,” author and architect Michael Sheridan writes. “While the building that Jacobsen completed in 1960 no longer truly exists, Room 606 encapsulates the underlying principles and formal ideas of the SAS House, so that it provides a lens for studying Jacobsen’s vanished masterwork. In doing so, we gain insight into his vast and varied production, and a deeper understanding of his unique approach to modern architecture and design.” continue to blog
