Reading Chair 1953
In 1953, Finn Juhl designed this simple yet elegant dining chair for the furniture manufacturer Bovirke, which we have relaunched under the name the Reading Chair. This chair is perfectly fit for private homes, hotels, restaurants and conference facilities alike.
ABOUT THE READING CHAIR
Finn Juhl designed the Reading Chair as both a dining room chair and as a reading chair. It is designed to be equally comfortable whether you choose to sit facing the front or the back. This might sound both odd and complicated, but thanks to Finn Juhl’s genius, the result was a simple, unpretentious, yet thoroughly well-designed and visually pleasing chair.
The Reading Chair is manufactured in oak with a backrest in teak or walnut and is available in a black painted variant. The seat is upholstered with either fabric or leather.
The Reading chair is now also available with a veneered walnut or teak seat.
