About

Sofa designed by Finn Jhul Manufactured by One collection Finn Juhl (Denmark) As the name suggests, this sofa was designed in 1946. The sofa was manufactured by the upholsterer Carl Brørup in his workshop in Copenhagen. Just like the Pelican chair, the 46 Sofa is also a “body for the body”. Only this “body” can accommodate two people who become one organic unit. Finn Juhl’s artistic license was heavily criticized at the time as some critics scornfully called his furniture “tired walruses”. Viewed by today’s eyes, the 46 Sofa is a charming and cosy addition to any interior style - Classic as well as modern. The sofa is masterfully built, consisting of a solid wooden frame with springs in the cushion and entirely hand sewn upholstery. It is available in fabric or leather with legs in oak, walnut or black painted. Size: W 132cm x D 75cm x H 80cm Seat height 42cm 1946, relaunched in 2008.

About Finn Juhl (Designer)

Along with Hans Wegner, Arne Jacobsen and Børge Mogensen, Finn Juhl was one of the great masters of mid-20th-century Danish design. Juhl was the first among that group to have his work promoted overseas, bringing the character of the nation’s furnishings — and the inherent principles of grace, craftsmanship and utility on which they were based — to an international audience. A stylistic maverick, Juhl embraced expressive, free-flowing shapes in chair and sofa designs much earlier than his colleagues, yet even his quietest pieces incorporate supple, curving forms that are at once elegant and ergonomic.

     As a young man, Juhl hoped to become an art historian, but his father steered him into a more practical course of study in architecture. He began designing furniture in the late 1930s, a discipline in which, despite his education, Juhl was self-taught, and quite proud of the fact. His earliest works, designed in the late 1930s, are perhaps his most idiosyncratic. The influence of contemporary art is clear in Juhl's 1939 “Pelican” chair: an almost Surrealist take on the classic wing chair. Critics reviled the piece, however; one said it looked like a "tired walrus." Juhl had tempered his creativity by 1945, when the Danish furniture-making firm Niels Vodder began to issue his designs. Yet his now-classic “NV 45” armchair still demonstrates panache, with a seat that floats above the chair’s teak frame.

     Juhl first exhibited his work in the United States in 1950, championed by Edgar Kaufmann Jr., an influential design critic and scion of America’s most prominent family of modern architecture and design patrons. (Kaufmann’s father commissioned Frank Lloyd Wright’s design of the house “Fallingwater.”) Juhl quickly won a following for such signature designs as the supremely comfortable “Chieftan” lounge chair, the biomorphic “Baker” sofa, and the “Judas” table, a piece ornamented with stylish inlaid silver plaquettes. As you will see from the offerings on these pages, Finn Juhl’s furniture — as well as his lighting, ceramics, tableware and accessories — has an air of relaxed sophistication and elegance that is unique in the realm of mid-20th- century design.
