nice 60's design

i really enjoyed the exhibitions in the 'danish museum of art and design' in copenhagen, dk. especially the one about 'danish design
 – from the 20th century' (you could download the exhibition catalogue here)

the most i liked the showroom full of 'arne jabobsen' design::

most of those pieces have been designed for the 'sas royal' hotel (1955-60) in downtown copenhagen, dk::

it's still there. i've checked.::

check out 'room 606' (from hotel's website)::
:: room 606 is the only hotel room with the original arne jacobsen décor from july 1960 when the hotel first opened its doors. with the grey, blue-green colors, the wengé wood and a selection of the most representative furniture designed for the hotel, this room takes its visitors to another time and place. room 606 functions as a regular guestroom and is a must for arne jacobsen fans and design lovers ...
hotel guests with an interest in design are welcome to visit room 606, when it is available. arne jacobsen designed the famous egg and swan chairs for the royal as well as the lesser known and rare drop chair... ::

nice. maybe next time i should stay there...
