Finn Juhl for Bovirke, armchair model 4443 ‘Westermanns Kaminstol’, teak, fabric, Denmark, design circa 1964, production 1950s

Static armchair designed by Danish designer Finn Juhl and produced by Bovirke. The chair shows the aesthetic characteristics of Juhl’s design, a modest design with high attention to detail, organic curved lines and excellent comfort. Especially the delicate curve of the arm and the seat that is detached from the frame. Moreover, the chair features crossed rungs that taper heavily towards the middle yet still provide solidness to the overall design. The frame is executed in solid teak. It is worth noting that a very similar chair was made by Niels Vodder.

The chair is upholstered in a yellow fabric, which is original. The fabric shows signs of age and use. Therefore, reupholstery is necessary, and our in-house atelier would gladly reupholster the chairs following your own wishes. The professional and experienced craftsmen in our in-house atelier are specialists in the reupholstery of design furniture. With high attention for the original, they make sure every piece retains its value.

Finn Juhl (1912-1989), born in Denmark, planned on becoming an art historian when he was young. His father however decided it would be a better career move if he went to become an architect. After his architecture degree Juhl worked for ten years with Vilhelm Lauritzen. At the age of 33 Finn Juhl opened his own furniture design practice. In the 1940s he designed a number of creations that regenerated Danish furniture design, and broke with the established furniture tradition. Juhl is known as the one of the most important pioneers of Danish design. He was in fact the first Danish furniture designer to gain widespread international recognition. His work was vital to spreading the “Danish Modern” concept around the world. His designs are re-known for being exquisitely elegant, refined up until the smallest detail and extremely well executed.

Please note that the shown price includes the reupholstery but not the fabric.
