In the rank of great Danish designers, Finn Juhl (1912–1989) is mentioned in the same breath with Hans J. Wegner and Arne Jacobsen. He became particularly well known for his sculptural, seemingly organic tables, chairs, and sofas. However, the complex interior designs he developed in the forties and fifties were also enormously successful. These include the Danish Embassy in Washington, D. C., and the conference room of the United Nations Trusteeship Council in New York. Not often known is that Finn Juhl was also a talented watercolour painter. For the first time, this publication allows readers to take a unique look at the designer’s working method. More than 125 subtle works on paper communicate the ingenuity of their creator. Juhl’s furniture designs and interiors can finally be experienced in all their complexity, as the reader can trace their development from the beginning of Juhl's career onwards.
