ArchitectMade Turning Tray Finn Juhl

ArchitectMade Turning Tray Finn Juhl – Danish design is known all across the world today. This wasn’t always the case, and the northern country also owes its international recognition to Finn Juhl, who was co-responsible for the Danish furniture export triumph of the 1960s. By breaking with the established traditions and bringing in new creations, he showed a whole generation of designers the way.

Various trademarks of the old master can also be found in the Turning Tray: this applies for the curved teak frame as well as the characteristic corner joints on the tray. If you want to admire Juhl’s original trays, it’s recommended to take a trip to his house in Charlottenlund, which today acts as a museum.

The Turning Tray is available in three different sizes and multiple colour combinations (black/white, black/red, black/green and black/blue).

Finn Juhl History

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.
