Watercolors by Finn Juhl offers a unique point of view for the working methods of Danish designer Finn Juhl: his watercolor paintings. Known as a phenomenal furniture and interior designer, Juhl was also talented in watercolor painting, and utilized the technique when creating his iconic furniture and interiors. The book presents more than 125 of Juhl’s original watercolor works, which allow the reader to delve deeper into Juhl’s process and approach to design.

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., or the conference room of the United Nations Trusteeship Council in New York. Only the most adept would be aware of the fact that Finn Juhl was also a talented watercolor 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: Finn Juhl’s furniture classics, living concepts, and interior designs can finally be experienced in all their complexity, as one can trace their development from the beginning onwards.
