The Largest Finn Juhl Exhibition Ever Created was Presented at The Tokyo Metropolitan Museum
At the exhibition ‘Finn Juhl and Danish Chairs’, visitors were able to experience the largest Finn Juhl exhibition ever created. The exhibition included both our modern collection of Finn Juhl furniture and the impressive archive of vintage furniture from the Japanese professor and collector Mr. Noritsugu Oda.
“Denmark is a design superpower particularly noted for its iconic, high-quality furniture produced from the 1940s through the 1960s. Among Danish designers, Finn Juhl (1912-1989) stands out for his exceptionally original and beautiful furniture. His chairs, with their characteristically elegant curves, have won acclaim for their sculptural appearance. This exhibition traces the history of Danish furniture design to reveal the background from which Juhl’s innovative works sprang. It makes evident the excellence of his designs, which while modern, fit the body comfortably. By looking at chairs at a time when a global pandemic has forced us to rethink how we live and work, the exhibition offers critical insights into comfortable living.” – Tokyo Metropolitan Museum
