Acknowledged as the father of Danish Modern design, Finn Juhl worked closely with cabinetmaker Niels Vodder to develop his innovative designs. Their collaboration was groundbreaking for seperating the seat and back from the frame of the chair. Inspired by abstract modern art, Juhl designed a sculpted frame with graceful fluid lines that required the advanced skills of seasoned craftsmen.
In 1951 Finn Juhl visited Baker Furniture; impressed with the skill of their wood workers, he licensed his designs to be manufactured in the US. This fantastic example is in outstanding original condition including the black leather upholstery. A chair this beautiful truly deserves it's status as an important icon of mid-century modern Danish design.
