In 1951, Finn Juhl designed the bench for Baker Furniture in USA, who named it "Rectangular Cocktail table". However, in the original drawing Finn Juhl referred to it simply as "bench", which is the reason why we have decided to name it "Cocktail Bench". The details on the Cocktail Bench is recognizable from the round Cocktail Table, which was relaunched in 2009.

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.
