FJ 64 Chair

By House of Finn Juhl


  • Description

    We have decided to launch the chair because we believe that the time is now right. The FJ 64 Chair is suitable for private homes, as well as for projects, where the light expression and durable materials fit perfectly into restaurants, the modern business, in canteens or for flexible use elsewhere.

    Similar to many of Finn Juhl’s other models, FJ 64 is named after the year in which it was designed.

    The shell of the chair is cast in polyamide reinforced with glass fibre. The legs are manufactured in slim, painted steel pipes in black, orange, light blue or light grey. Towards the floor, the legs are completed with wooden toes in teak, oak or walnut.

    Finn Juhl

    Finn Juhl (1912-1989) was the first Danish furniture designer to be recognized internationally. He studied architecture at the Royal Academy in Copenhagen with Danish architect Vilhelm Lauritzen, but as a furniture designer he was self-taught, a fact he always emphasized.

    Juhl began designing furniture in the late 1930s, in the beginning mostly pieces intended for himself, but after setting up his own office in 1945 he soon became known for his unusual, expressive and sculptural pieces. He initiated a collaboration with master cabinetmaker Niels Vodder, and caused a stir at the annual Cabinetmaker's Exhibition with designs clearly influenced by modern, abstract art. Compared to his contemporaries, Juhl placed more emphasis on form and less on function, a serious break with the tradition of the Klint School.

    Finn Juhl's first American assignment came in 1951 when he was asked to design the interior of the Trusteeship Council Chamber at the UN headquarters in New York. An overwhelming task for a young architect, but Juhl gained much praise for his result. This first experience in America and the contacts made proved valuable for many Danish architects, as it paved the way for "Danish Modern" to become internationally known and valued.

    One of Finn Juhl's most well-known pieces is the Chieftains Chair. Designed in 1949, it is a fine example of Juhl's great idea of separating the sculpturally shaped seat and back from the wooden frame. The same principle is evident in the 45 Chair, designed in 1945. Here, emphasis is laid on the elegantly shaped armrests.
