Radisson SAS Royal Hotel (Birds Eye)
The Radisson SAS Royal Hotel is a hotel in Copenhagen, that was designed by Danish architect and designer Arne Jacobsen for the airline Scandinavian Airlines System (SAS) between 1956 and 1960. It was the largest hotel in Denmark when it was completed in 1960 and was the first skyscraper in Copenhagen. It is located in the heart of the city, close to Tivoli and the central station.

The entire hotel from the exterior facade through to the stainless-steel cutlery used in the restaurant and the Swan and Egg chairs gracing the lobby have been designed by famous Danish architect, Arne Jacobsen. Since most of his work has been replaced by coporate standard fabrics and furniture, the hotel is referred to as Jacobsens Lost Gesamtkunstwerk. Only a single room has been kept in the original design. It has all of the original, green furniture and the wood panels on the wall. This room, with the number 606, is still available for booking.
