Finn Juhl is considered the father of Danish Design. Born in 1912, he became world famous for designing the Trusteeship Council Chamber in the UN building in the 1940s.
Juhl was an architect, interior and industrial designer, but is by far known best for his innovative, modern furniture designs. He received several awards for his designs during his lifetime, many of which are now featured in modern art museums around the world. Today the Finn Juhl Prize is given to a designer who has “made a special effort in the field of furniture design–with special reference to chairs.”
