Finn Juhl was never boring. To this day, his designs are always unconventional and there are often exciting things going on as he defies expectation. Juhl himself once said, that “the deviation is in the detail”. This is very much the case with his 108 Chair, which on the surface looks like any ordinary dining chair but a closer look reveals surprising details such as angled side bars and sliding cross bars, which add an unexpected movement and dynamic to the construction.
Juhl’s philosophy of separating the carried and the carrying elements and thus creating space is apparent in this chair, which, despite being both upholstered and very comfortable has managed to keep its lightness and be beautiful from all angles.
The chair is manufactured in natural or black stained oak or walnut, upholstered in leather or fabric.Read More
