Maritime Sweaters
and Good Design

Andersen-Andersen wanted to marry the Danish design philosophy and the maritime tradition by constructing a sweater that would last longer than any other – without pilling, and without losing shape. It took a year of relentless searching and experimentation. Andersen‑Andersen went from spinning mill to spinning mill, eventually deciding to develop their own yarn using worsted, extra‑spun, long‑fibre merino wool. Knitters told them to lower their expectations. But they persevered. The addition of a machine‑knitted triangular pattern by the neckline meant they were finally able to create a rounded collar while keeping the symmetrical shape.

Andersen‑Andersen’s flagship store is situated directly across from the new Danish Architecture Centre in Copenhagen, nestled in a storefront on the main floor of the Ny Christiansborg building.
The Chieftan Sofa is truly an extraordinary piece of furniture and one of Finn Juhl’s most spectacular designs. At Andersen-Andersen the Chieftain Sofa is paired with the equally exclusive Butterfly Table. The Chieftain Sofa is upholstered in 'Vegetal' leather in the colour '90' and the Butterfly Table is in walnut.

Andersen‑Andersen’s flagship store is situated directly across from the new Danish Architecture Centre in Copenhagen, nestled in a storefront on the main floor of the Ny Christiansborg building. Adhering to the Danish design principles in both simplicity and functionalism, the Andersen‑Andersen flagship store is outfitted with classic pieces from House of Finn Juhl.

Changing the expression of an entire room or a transition space is easy with Finn Juhl's Panel System. The versatile and characteristic system from 1953 offers countless possibilities in terms of materials, sizing and functions.
The Panel System allows for cupboards and shelves to be moved around independently with almost limitless combinations of wood, colors and even fabrics available.
