The Characteristics of The 108 Chair

The Deviation is
in the Detail

To this day, Finn Juhl’s designs are unconventional and defy expectations with subtle details. Finn Juhl himself once said that the deviation is in the detail. This is also the case with his 108 Chair that is defined by elegant, subtle details such as angled side bars and sliding cross bars are revealed. These details add unexpected movement and dynamics to the construction.

Finn Juhl's philosophy

A Sophisticated Addition to Any
Dining Space

Finn Juhl’s philosophy of separating the carried and the carrying elements, thus creating space, is apparent in the 108 Chair. Despite being both upholstered and very comfortable the 108 Chair manages to keep its lightness and appears beautiful from all angles. Crafted with a stunning wooden frame and seat and back upholstered in either textile or leather. A sophisticated and beautifully crafted addition to any dining space.
