Danish

Reading Chair

In 1953, Finn Juhl designed a simple yet elegant dining chair for the furniture manufacturer Bovirke. The chair is perfectly fit for private homes, hotels, restaurants and conference facilities alike.

 

Juhl designed the Reading Chair as both a dining room chair and as a reading chair. It is designed to be equally comfortable whether you choose to sit facing the back or the front. This might sound both odd and complicated, but thanks to Juhl’s genius, the result was a simple, unpretentious, yet thoroughly well designed and visually pleasing chair.

 

The Reading Chair is manufactured in oak with a backside of either walnut or teak. The seat is upholstered with either fabric or leather. The chair is also available in black stain.

Finn Juhl

DENMARK (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.
