Finn Juhl originally designed the 46 Chair for cabinetmaker Niels Vodder and presented the chair at the Cabinetmakers' Guild Exhibition in 1946. The 46 Chair represents the very best of Danish Modern furniture design. When Finn Juhl designed the 46 chair he also designed a slightly more minimalistic version without armrests and this piece now sees the light of day again.
Finn Juhl clearly attempted to emphasize the lightness of the chair by separating the carried and the carrying elements. Similar to the Chieftain Chair and the 45 Chair, the 46 Chair represents the very best of modern Danish furniture design. Thanks to modern technology the relaunched version is manufactured in an outstanding quality with stronger joints than the original.
As one of the leading figures in twentieth century furniture design, Finn Juhl is responsible for introducing North America to the Danish Modern movement through his work on the United Nations Headquarters in New York City. Originally trained as an architect, he began creating furniture for himself in the 1930's and soon gained widespread recognition for his organic forms and expressive treatment of wood, often taking the material past the limits of what was thought possible. Thinking with the mindset of a sculptor, his ambition was to design furniture with movement and life.
