The Panel System | Finn Juhl | 1953

Finn Juhl designed a wall-mounted panel and shelving system in 1953, which elegantly complemented his interior design. Below, you can explore selected versions of the Panel System by switching between different materials and compositions. There are six predefined compositions available for you to choose from: 1A, 1B, 2A, 2B, 3A, and 3B. Each composition can be viewed in various materials. Please note that these six compositions are only examples; the element-based structure of the system allows for almost limitless combinations.

About The Panel System

A Well-Balanced Unit

When Finn Juhl designed a house or an interior, his objective was to create a harmonious totality where architecture, design and art come together - a so-called "Gesamtkunstwerk". A humanistic-inspired philosophy where all the elements in an interior seamlessly become one well-balanced unit. In his work, it translated into a philosophy where furniture and space seamlessly became one well-balanced unit. The Panel System supports this approach as it transforms walls into an integrated part of the overall interior design and at the same time add both warmth and character.

Contrary to many of his architect colleagues, Finn Juhl worked from an inside-out approach, starting with the function of each room and how that was reflected in its interior design before he focused on the exterior.

About The Panel System

Classic, Modern and Versatile

Today, Finn Juhl's Panel System is still one of the most aesthetic and practical solutions for dynamic storage. The flexible system allows for cupboards and shelves to be moved around independently with almost limitless combinations of wood types, colours and even textiles available.

The Panel System is crafted at our own workshop in Ringkøbing, Denmark, where our headquarters is also located.
