Completed in 1960, the SAS Hotel in Copenhagen was Denmark's first skyscraper, and its architect's masterwork.

Arne Jacobsen designed its every aspect, from the glass exterior to the fixtures, fabrics and furniture – including the now iconic, instantly recognisable egg chair. The hotel has since been remodelled, with the exception of room 606 which has been fully preserved. Taking this wonderful time capsule as a microcosm of Jacobsen's work, Michael Sheridan's exhaustive new monograph reveals the extraordinary detail of Jacobsen's work and philosophy.
