BENCH BY FINN JUHL 1953
MANUFACTURER : ONE COLLECTION
A bench or table – used for both, designed by Finn Juhl for BOVIRKE in 1953, as part of a series of furniture with a simple steel frame in burnished steel. The bench is in the design family with furniture such as the Nyhavn Table and FJ Sideboard.
Finn Juhl had an international breakthrough in the USA in the early 1950s and achieved great fame; especially for his design of the United Nations Trusteeship Council Chamber in New York but also for his furniture and exhibitions. The FJ Bench was part of the large travelling exhibition in North America “Design in Scandinavia”, which came to 22 cities from 1954 to 1957 with a total of approximately 650,000 visitors. As a result of this and because of its light, elegant and timeless design, the FJ Bench has always been a popular piece of furniture that has achieved extremely high prices at auctions around the world.
Now ONECOLLECTION has relaunched the bench in three lengths: 112, 160 and 225 cm; and in walnut, teak, oak and Oregon pine with hand-burnished steel frame with wood “feet”. The bench comes with edges in matt polished brass. Furthermore, the bench is available with a cushion padded with wool.
L: 112, 160 OR 225cm.
