Armchair designed by Finn Juhl in 1953, relaunched in 2015.Manufactured by House of Finn Juhl in Denmark.In 1953, Finn Juhl designed this simple yet elegant dining chair for the furniture manufacturer Bovirke, which we have relaunched under the name the Reading Chair. This chair is perfectly fit for private homes, hotels, restaurants and conference facilities alike.Finn 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 front or the back. This might sound both odd and complicated, but thanks to Finn Juhl’s genius, the result was a simple, unpretentious, yet thoroughly well-designed and visually pleasing chair.Important information regarding images of products:Please note that some of the images show other colors and variations of the model, these images are only to present interior design proposals.

He wished to study art history, however, his father would not allow it. Instead, Finn Juhl began studying architecture at the Royal Academy of Arts in Copenhagen. Here, he studied under some of the most influential functionalists of his time. Among these was the great architect Vilhelm Lauritzen who hired Finn Juhl at his own studio in 1934 before Finn Juhl had even graduated. Eventually, the work took up all of his time and Finn Juhl never finished his studies. Later in life he always described himself as a self-taught furniture designer. One of the international highlights of Finn Juhl’s career was designing the complete interior of the Trusteeship Council Chamber at the UN headquarters in New York between 1951 and 1952. His sculptural furniture is widely appreciated all-over the world. Today, Finn Juhl is still considered the father of Danish Modern, the design movement from Denmark, that arose during the 1950s in the United States. At the time of his death in 1989, Finn Juhl had become an award-winning and highly respected international furniture artist. Finn Juhl was greatly inspired by both modernism in art and functionalism in architecture. His genius was cross-pollinating these two fields, thus creating a completely new artistic idiom. Like sculptures, Finn Juhl’s designs are created to stand freely in a room. At the same time, they are developed with a playful insight into the practical function of every detail. About the manufacturer:In 2001 House of Finn Juhl trusted with the exclusive rights to manufacture and relaunch Finn Juhl’s sculptural and iconic furniture by Finn Juhl’s widow Hanne Wilhelm Hansen. Today the unique Finn Juhl collection consists of more than 40 Classic masterpieces, all of which they manufacture with the utmost respect for the original heritage and strict demands for quality.
