Finn Juhl

Finn Juhl (b. January 30, 1912 - May 17, 1989, Denmark) was a twentieth century Danish designer who contributed to the fields in architecture, furniture, interior and industrial design. He is regarded as 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. He has been quoted as saying "One cannot create happiness with beautiful objects, but one can spoil quite a lot of happiness with bad ones." Juhl's designs for ArchitectMade include the UN Wall Clock, Modern Teak Serving Bowl and Turning Trays, which are stocked by Stardust.
