Mid-Century Modern, Denmark
Two very rare drawers with front in Wenge wood. Front has only minor signs of wear, but some age inside. Look at photos for condition.
The SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen was designed by architect and designer Arne Jacobsen for the Scandinavian Airlines System between 1956 and 1960 and was the first design hotel ever built.
With the Royal Hotel he created a “Gesamtkunstwerk” from door handles, fixtures, curtains, lamps, tables etc. to chairs as the the Swan, the Egg and the Drop.
After the death of Arne Jacobsen in 1971, the hotel went through some modernizations and changes - among others about the mid-1990s, where these drawers were acquired. Possibly the drawers were used in conjunction with wardrobes of the rooms.
Today the hotel is referred to as the “Lost Gesamtkunstwerk” of Jacobsen. Only one single room has been kept in the original design - room number 606.
Dimensions: W x H x D: 52 x 9½ x 45½ cm.
