The Most Famous Hotel Room in the World?

We recently heard about what may be one of the most famous hotel rooms in the world - at least to lovers of modernism. Located in the "first designer hotel" it is...

...Room 606 at the Radisson Royal Hotel in Copenhagen. Room 606 is an example of Arne Jacobsen’s original interior design for the hotel rooms from 1960. It still functions as a regular guest room, available for booking.

Info from the Radisson site: 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 colours, 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. 606 offers state-of-the-art Bang & Olufsen TV and Royal Club amenities.

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. The room features other details like built-in makeup mirrors, radio and intercom system.

Lots more info on the history of the hotel and its design can be found right here.
