Lotto No. 68


A rare cutlery cabinet from the SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen, designed by Arne Jacobsen


, 1957, for the hotel’s restaurant, teak veneer, copper plated steel, five compartments, wenge edges, the interior lined with bluish green felt, an open tray for plates, height 72 cm, width 85 cm, depth 44.5 cm, and a 24-part cutlery set for six persons, designed by Arne Jacobsen, manufactured by Georg Jensen in the 1970s. (DRAX)

This free-standing piece of furniture was either a single custom-made piece or was produced for the hotel in a limited number. In terms of construction principle, the object is very similar to the chests consisting of three drawers that were exclusively used in the rooms on the nineteenth floor. Jacobsen used copper-plated steel as a material in several places throughout the hotel, such as for the frames of the Drop Chairs in the Panorama Salon.

Provenance:
SAS Royal Hotel, Copenhagen; private collection, Germany

Lit.:
cf. M. Sheridan, Room 606: The SAS House and the Work of Arne Jacobsen, New York 2003, p. 28, p. 184
