Finn Juhl (1912-1989)
He helped pioneer Danish design during the 1940s both at home and abroad by introducing Danish Modern to the U.S.
Juhl frequently softened the lines of modernist wooden chairs. He preferred natural shapes, teak, and other dark woods, which went against the common practice of using oak.
Jean Arp strongly influenced Juhl, which is evident in his Pelican chair as well as motifs used during his career. Tribal art also inspires his work, seen in the Chieftan chair.
Juhl’s most famous piece was the floating back and seat, which he used in the majority of his chair designs. The upholstered parts contrast with the hardwood in the rest of the chair. From 1945-1948, full back and seats that appeared to hover on their supports grew in popularity.
