77 Chair

By House of Finn Juhl

As the only Danish designer on the international scene in the beginning of the 1950s, Finn Juhl had made his mark in the US and brought ideas back home. Inspired by his American colleagues, he managed to incorporate an international touch into furniture that was carried on slender legs in burnished or painted steel with wooden toes. One of these new furniture models was the 77 Chair that evokes memories of the international airport lounges and hotel lobbies of the 50s and 60, as well as architect-designed homes with large windows and graphic freestanding interiors.

Behind the rather modest and simple exterior of the 77 Chair lies time-consuming craftsmanship and materials of the finest quality. House of Finn Juhl produces the re-launched version in Denmark, as originally, on a solid blind frame in beech, upholstered and hand-stitched according to traditional craftsmanship in textile or leather.
