House of Finn Juhl
House of Finn Juhl
In 2001 They were trusted with the exclusive rights to manufacture and relaunch Finn Juhl’s sculptural and iconic furniture by Finn Juhl’s widow Hanne Wilhelm Hansen. Today the unique Finn Juhl collection consists of more than 40 classic masterpieces, all of which we manufacture with the utmost respect for the original heritage and strict demands for quality. For them, venturing into Finn Juhl’s design universe has been like embarking on a joyful journey with constant surprises in terms of shapes, aesthetics and unique design details.Their products have to be so durable that they can be enjoyed by users today and by generations to come.
Today, our House of Finn Juhl furniture is mainly manufactured in Denmark. Our upholstered furniture such as the Poet Sofa and the Pelican Chair are entirely hand-sewn in the same Danish tradition as the old ones. However, when it comes to our wooden furniture, we have chosen to utilise modern technology, which goes hand-in-hand with excellent craftsmanship in order to make Juhl’s visions come true. The intricately shaped wooden frames in the Chieftain Chair for instance, are masterly crafted by our skilled Japanese friends in Yamagata.
Without this approach, it would not be possible to achieve the fantastic finish and delicate detail that was Finn Juhl’s trademark. Finn Juhl’s dilemma was that many of his furniture designs called for technical solutions, which were not invented yet. Since he did not want to change or devaluate the characteristic design, he rather accepted this fact. That is the reason why some of his models are only produced in very limited quantities, while others never even saw the light of day.
Several of Juhl’s iconic designs would never be produced because they would have been too delicate to use.
