Finn Juhl for Niels Vodder, NV45, teak, blue fabric, Denmark, design 1945, production, 1950s

This ‘NV45’ chair by Finn Juhl is executed in teak and blue fabric. The chair is made by master woodworker Niels Vodder and marked on the inside of the frame with both his and Finn Juhl's name. The combination of the blue and teak is very pleasing. The 'NV45’ armchair was designed for the exhibition of the furniture makers guild in 1945. It is seen as one of Juhl's masterpieces and it is in this design, that Juhl followed the principle of liberating the frame from the seat. According to Juhl, he designed the chair in four hours without any previous drawing.

Finn Juhl (1912-1989), born in Denmark, planned on becoming an art historian when he was young. His father 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 renown for being exquisitely elegant, refined up until the smallest detail and extremely well executed.
