Finn Juhl: A Danish architect, interior and industrial designer, most known for his furniture design, was one of the leading figures in the creation of “Danish design” in the 1940s. He was the designer who introduced Danish Modern to America. Juhl gave a soft edge to the lines of wooden modernist chairs, favoring organic shapes which often took the wood to the limits of what was possible. He generally used teak and other dark woods, unlike many of the other proponents of the Danish Modern movement who often used oak in their designs. In the 1950s, Juhl won international acclaim for his furniture, and was awarded five gold medals at the MilanTriennials. He gained international renown as an interior designer for his work on the Trusteeship Council Chamber at United Nations headquarters in New York.
