46 Armchair

This chair is an example of Finn Juhl’s most beautiful work. It was originally designed in 1946 for the Copenhagen Cabinetmakers’ Guild Exhibition for master cabinetmaker Niels Vodder. In 1953, Finn Juhl modified the chair into a simpler, more aerodynamic version for the furniture manufacturer Bovirke. It is this later version, that we have relaunched.

About the 46 Armchair

In this version, Finn Juhl clearly attempted to emphasize the lightness of the chair by separating the carried and the carrying elements. Similar to the Chieftain Chair and the 45 Chair, the 46 Chair represents the very best of modern Danish furniture design. Thanks to modern technology the relaunched version is manufactured in an outstanding quality with stronger joints than the original.

The 46 Chair is manufactured in oak or walnut and is upholstered with fabric or leather. The chair is available with or without armrests.
