Table Bench 1953
Finn Juhl experienced an international breakthrough in the USA during the early 1950s. He subsequently designed a range of furniture with steel pipe frames, inspired by the American designers he had come across.
The Table Bench was part of the range from this period and was also included in the large-scale exhibition called Design in Scandinavia. The exhibition, that was curated by Finn Juhl himself, travelled across 22 cities in North America between 1954 and 1957 and was attended by approximately 650,000 visitors.
As a result of this exposure and because of its light, elegant and timeless design, the Table Bench has always been a popular piece that has achieved extremely high prices at auctions worldwide.
