The Swan Sofa was designed in 1958 by Arne Jacobsen for the suites, the lobby and the panoramic restaurant of the SAS Royal Copenhagen. The Copenhageners chose the hotel building as the ugliest building in the city – it is now regarded as an indispensable contribution to international modernity.

Jacobsen has always carried out his projects with attention to detail and perfection. When he has designed a building, it is usually the same with the complete interior – right up to the curtain rail designed by him. His perfectionism often led to delays on the production side, his aesthetic demands did not stop in the private sector either.

Arne Jacobsen once said: „I am suffocating in aesthetics“. Coffee cups always had to stand after strict order in the cupboard and even with the selection and arrangement of cake pieces he is said to have paid meticulous attention to the appearance.
