Denmark—a design superpower that produced iconic high-quality furniture designs from the 1949s to ‘60s. Among Danish designers, Finn Juhl (1912-1989) stands out for his design of exceptionally original and beautiful furniture. His chairs, with their characteristic elegant curves, have won acclaim for their sculptural appearance.
This exhibition will trace the history of Danish furniture design to reveal the background from which Juhl’s innovative works sprang. The exhibition will make evident the excellence of his designs which, while modern, fit the body comfortably. The chair—a piece of furniture supporting many aspects of daily life. By looking at chairs at a time when a global pandemic has forced us to rethink how we live and work, the exhibition will offer critical insights into comfortable living.
