Relaunched in 2001 and manufactured exclusively in Denmark, House of Finn Juhl furniture fuses modern technology with excellent craftsmanship in order to make the intricate shapes and modern visions of Finn Juhl's classic, mid-century modern designs.
Credited with bringing mid-century modern to America, Finn Juhl was one of the most prolific leading figures in the creation of Danish design in the 1940s. Originally trained as an architect, it was his modern furniture designs that gave him an international reputation. First inspired to make furniture for his own apartment, Juhl tirelessly worked his way to recognition through exhibitions, commissions, and competitions to ultimately having his pieces manufactured in Europe and North America.
Despite choosing to focus on designing for the mass market, Juhl is revered to this day for his ability to design around the shape of the human form. By carefully analysing the body’s interaction with furniture, Juhl crafted designs with curves and organic lines that starkly contrasted with the work of his contemporaries. As such, one of his hallmarks was that his designs required seamless joinery to ensure each element effortlessly flowed into the other. Another was his original creation of the ‘floating back and seat’ where the backs and seats of his chairs would seemingly hover aesthetically over their supports. For truly exquisite mid-century furniture, look no further than Finn Juhl.
