Portrait Finn Juhl

Danish designer Finn Juhl managed like no other to combine modern style and free forms. He was born in 1912 in Frederiksberg/Denmark, began after school to study architecture. After a few years, he focused on his passion and worked exclusively as a furniture designer. At first not really recognized in his homeland, this changed only through his popularity in the U.S. and he became a pioneer of typical Scandinavian design, which he significantly influenced. He also designed numerous interiors, such as the Danish Embassy in Washington and the interior of an SAS aircraft. His home in Charlottenlund, north of Copenhagen, which he designed himself in 1942 - a simple, rectangular bungalow of whitewashed brick - can be seen today as part of the Ordrupgaard Museum. His furniture has lost none of its relevance and is unique in its strong expression. (Credits Finn Juhl, Ordrupgaard, jr)
