Finn Juhl

(Frederiksberg, 1912 – Gentofte, 1989)

"You can't create happiness with beautiful objects, but you can ruin some happiness with bad ones."

Art historian in aspiration, architect and designer in reality, Finn Juhl's furnitures are the expression of his style: a shape corresponding to the purpose and an almost sculptural material modeling. In his work he freed himself from conventional methods, revealing a pioneer in the use of new shapes and color as an active element in furniture.
