Meet the iconic work of Finn Juhl

Finn Juhl was born on January 30th of 1912 and passed away in  May of 1989. Was a Danish architect, interior, and industrial designer, most known for his furniture design. He was one of the leading figures in the creation of Danish design in the 1940s and he was the designer who introduced Danish Modern to America.

He’s first goal was to become an art historian. From a very early age, he became interested in the fine arts. However, his father would not allow a career in the arts. Alternatively, Finn Juhl applied to the Architecture Department at the Royal Academy of Arts in Copenhagen. Finn Juhl started his studies in the 1930s, this was an important period in furniture design, modern design was beginning to emerge. Like other modernist pioneers, Juhl started from scratch with no models to follow or inherited restrictions. He designed it by measuring his own body and analyzing how the individual components of the chair should support the human body. But unlike his modernist contemporaries, with their streamlined or scaffolding-like structures, Juhl was looking for a more organic natural form. Rather than thinking in terms of practical construction, Finn Juhl had the mindset of a sculptor when he shaped his pieces of furniture.
