Finn Juhl

Most known for his furniture design, Finn Juhl was a Danish architect, interior and industrial designer. Together with fellow Danes Arne Jacobsen, Hans Wegner, Borge Mogensen and Poul Kjaerholm, Finn Juhl introduces Danish modern to midcentury America. His interest for making furniture began in 1930s when his father disapproved of his desire to be an art historian. Although trained in architecture, it was his modern furniture designs that made him an international name. His earliest works, designed in the late 1930s, are perhaps his most idiosyncratic yet one critic said it looked like a "tired walrus." But after many attempt, at age 39, Juhl made his U.S. debut in 1951 at the Good Design exhibit in Chicago and at MoMA in New York. He is most famous today for his iconic furniture designs including the Chieftan Armchair and the 108 Dining Chair which are now reproduced by Mobelaris
