This chair is an example of Finn Juhl’s most beautiful work. It was originally designed for the 1946 Copenhagen Cabinetmakers’ Guild Exhibition for master cabinetmaker Niels Vodder. In 1953, Juhl modified the chair into a simpler, more aerodynamic version for the furniture manufacturer Bovirke. It is this latter version, which Onecollection has re-launched.
In his second version, Finn Juhl clearly aimed at emphasizing the lightness of the chair by separating the carried and the carrying elements. Similarly to the Chieftain Chair and the 45-Chair, the 46-Chair represents the very best in modern Danish furniture design. Thanks to modern technology the re-launched version is manufactured in outstanding quality with stronger joints than the original.
The 46 Chair is manufactured in oak, walnut and teak with leather or wool upholstery.Read More

Finn JuhlDENMARK (1912-1989)
Danish architect Finn Juhl (1912–1989) is regarded as one of the greatest furniture designers of the 20th century. He was a pioneer figure within Danish furniture design and the Danish Modern movement. Being commissioned to furnish one of the larger delegates rooms at the UN building in New York, and being represented at the Museum of Modern Art, made him well known outside of Denmark early on. His many contacts led to collaboration with the American furniture industry making his furniture among the first to make Danish Modern an international phenomenon. Today, Finn Juhl’s furniture are seen in private and public places, as well as museums, around the world.Learn More
