Finn Juhl

Finn Juhl
Finn Juhl was a pioneer figure in the Danish Modern movement. Born in Denmark in 1912, Finn Juhl studied architecture at the Royal Danish Academy in Copenhagen. After graduating, he worked for ten years in the office of Vilhelm Lauritzen, a leading Danish Modernist architect. In 1945, he set up his own practice, specializing in interior and furniture design. Juhl created design forms with the mindset of a sculptor and much of his furniture was technically ahead of its time. Shown here is his L-shaped bungalow he designed and built north of Copenhagen. It is a stunning example of Danish modernism for architecture, furniture design, and the visual arts. Finn Juhl is known for his furniture design, for which he was famously self-taught, but he had a truly visionary eye as an architect. His home is one of the earliest examples of an open floor plan. #RoomsWeLove
