Design critics have described Finn Juhl’s Egyptian Chair as a miraculous mix of ancient Egyptian design principles, modern rhythms and aerodynamics.
The chair was displayed for the first time in 1949 in Copenhagen at the Cabinetmakers’ Guild Exhibition alongside the acclaimed Chieftain Chair. Riding the wave of success from this particular exhibition, Finn Juhl experienced his international breakthrough and subsequently became known as the father of the famous Danish Modern design style.
Many years later, Finn Juhl himself spoke about a visit at the Louvre Museum in Paris where he became so fascinated by an antique Egyptian chair, that he “stole” its construction when he designed his own Egyptian Chair.
The Egyptian Chair is characterized by its unique craftsmanship. It is produced in oak or walnut with upholstery in fabric or leather.
