Sessel FD 133, Finn Juhl, France & Daverkosen
Stunning easy chair, designed in 1954 by Finn Juhl, manufactured by France & Daverkosen. The chair is also called Spade Chair, probably because of the ends of the armrests, which remind of spade handles.
The chair stands out for its floating design and high quality craftsmanship.
Finn Juhl (1912 - 1989) was a Danish architect and designer. He was one of the most influential figures in Danish furniture design and one of the persons who guaranteed its international success.
Juhl studied architecture at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts. After working for 10 years at Vilhelm Lauritzen's architectural firm, Juhl opened his own design practice for interior and furniture design. Some of his works were featured in the american magazine Interior, and quickly his furniture became that popular in the USA, that it was produced on an industrial level.
