46 Chair

Finn Juhl originally designed the 46 Armchair for master cabinetmaker Niels Vodder and presented the chair at the Cabinetmakers' Guild Exhibition in 1946. After Finn Juhl designed the 46 Armchair, he also designed a slightly more minimalistic version without armrests for Bovirke in 1947 – which is now simply known as the 46 Chair because it originates from the 46 Armchair. Both the 46 Chair and the 46 Armchair represent the very best of Danish Modern furniture design.

About the 46 Chair

Finn Juhl clearly attempted to emphasize the lightness of the chair by separating the carried and the carrying elements. Beautifully crafted from a solid wooden frame in oak or walnut, combined with a seat and backrest upholstered in textile or leather. The chair is also available with armrests.
