Bovirke Table

Finn Juhl had the ability to make functionalism unite with aesthetics, which in particular applies to this simple and elegant, extendable table. The wave-shaped cross bar allows you to move your legs freely under the table. At the same time, the table is incredibly practical, because the extension leaves can be stored away inside the table.

Poet sofa

This small two-seater was first shown at the Copenhagen Cabinetmakers’ Guild Exhibition in 1941 and should be seen as a natural progression from the Pelican Chair from the previous year. The upholstery is very slim compared to what was the norm at the time and the result of Juhl’s ambition to create functional furniture for smaller apartments.

Chieftain Chair

The Chieftain Chair is one of Finn Juhl’s absolute masterpieces, representing the peak of his career as a furniture designer. At its introduction in 1949, the chair marked a renewal of the Danish furniture design tradition and today it is seen as one of the most important exponents of the Danish Modern movement in the USA in the 1950’s.

About

FINN JUHL IN SHORT 1912-1989

Instead Finn Juhl enrolled at the Department of architecture at the Royal Academy of Arts in Copenhagen. Finn Juhl began his studies in the 1930s, which was an important period in furniture design, when modern design started to emerge.
