Panel System 1953

Panel System

When Finn Juhl designed houses and interiors, his objective was to create a so-called Gesamtkunstwerk: a humanistic-inspired work of art that makes use of all or many art forms. In his work it translated into a philosophy where furniture and space seamlessly become one well-balanced unit. 

Contrary to many of his architect colleagues, he worked from the inside out starting with the function of each room and how that purpose was reflected in its interior design before he focused on the exterior.

About the Panel System

In 1953 Juhl designed a wall-mounted panel and shelving system, which complemented his interior designs in a very sophisticated manner. The panel system transformed walls into an integrated part of the overall design. 

The flexible system allows for cupboards and shelves to be moved around independently with limitless combinations of wood, colors and even textiles available. 

Onecollection has chosen to relaunch Juhl’s Panel System because it still appears to be both a practical and modern answer to dynamic storage despite its 60 odd years.
