Finn Juhl (1912-1989) was a Danish architect and industrial designer, and one of the most iconic designers of 20th century Danish design. Juhl studied architecture at the Architecture School of Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts under Kay Fisker, a notable architect of his day, and after graduating he worked at the architect office of Vilhelm Lauritzen. In 1943 Juhl was awarded with Christian Frederik Hansen prize for young architects, and in 1945 he opened his own studio in Copenhagen.
As a designer Juhl balanced between strong, sculptural shapes and functional minimalism. His style was characterized by organic designs and the use of wood, especially dark woods such as teak. Juhl was also known as the designer who made the Danish Modern famous in America in the 1940s, and in the early 1950s he was chosen as the interior designer for the United Nations Trusteeship Council Chamber in New York City. During his career Juhl received many prestigious design and architectural awards, such as three gold medals at the 1957 Milan Triennale, and 1978 Honorary Royal Designer for Industry.
