The FJ Bowl from Architectmade charms you with its natural look created by the unique shape of the bowl and the teak wood used as the material. Designed by Danish design legend Finn Juhl in 1951, the wooden bowl represents Juhl's design aesthetic in its purest form: organic shapes and dark wood combine with carefully thought out dimensions that make the bowl appear to change its shape depending on viewpoint. Made from a single piece of teak wood, the bowl will create a beautiful patina over time. The FJ Bowl is ideal for storing and diplaying jewellery and other small treasures.

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.View all products
