House of Finn Juhl
Introducing the House of Finn Juhl: a series of re-released icons from the portfolio of Denmark's mid-century master. Designed with the user's form in mind, each piece in the collection showcases curved lines and soft angles, including Juhl's iconic France Chair, re-issued in 2016 to mark the design's 60th anniversary.
House of Finn Juhl was established in 1990 and, thanks to Finn Juhl’s widow Hanne Wilhelm Hansen, has the exclusive rights to manufacture and relaunch Juhl’s iconic furniture. Today, the collection honours the work of the late designer with a portfolio of over 40 furniture classics that includes the Pelican Chair, the Eye Table and the Nyhavn Desk. House of Finn Juhl is committed to protecting the legacy of the inspiring Danish designer, and each piece it crafts must be completed to the same standard as if it came from the original cabinetmaker’s workshop.
Originally an architectural student at the Royal Academy of Arts in Copenhagen, Finn Juhl is revered for his ability to design around the shape of the human form. Carefully analysing the body’s interaction with furniture, Juhl created designs with curves and organic lines that starkly contrasted the work of his modernist contemporaries. To achieve this, Juhl worked with the mindset of a sculptor, and as such, his designs require seamless joinery to ensure each element flows effortlessly into one another.
Sideboard With Tray Unit Walnut & Blue
Finn Juhl, the master of Danish Modern, originally designed this iconic Sideboard and Tray Unit in blue and white hues in 1955.
Inspired by the work of his American colleagues, in particular Charles and Ray Eames, this Sideboard marks the start of Finn Juhl’s experimentation with steel.
With a veneered walnut corpus and black steel legs finished with matching walnut feet, the sideboard is truly a combination of Finn Juhl’s old and new styles. An injection of colour, in the form of two sliding doors and a six-drawer tray unit painted in cool blue hues, taken from Goethe’s colour wheel, highlights the influence of Finn Juhl’s contemporaries on his work.
