Product description

The 45 Chair is the definition of a true masterpiece, and has become symbolic for Finn Juhl’s design genius. The chair was presented at the Copenhagen Cabinetmaker’s Guild Exhibition in 1945 and has been called “the mother of all modern chairs” by the Japanese professor and chair expert Mr. Noritsugu Oda.

This chair was one of the first to break free of the current tradition for armchairs by freeing the upholstered areas from the wooden frame. With the 45 Chair, Finn Juhl created an elegant chair in this innovative style that he had been working towards for many years. The result was a clean, strong and elegant chair and a quiet revolution.

The space between the frame and the seat creates a lightness, which, combined with its organic shape and sublime detailing, creates a unique beauty. The chair is also extremely comfortable and thus appeals to all senses.

The 45 Chair is manufactured in teak, oak or walnut and upholstered with fabric or leather.

Concept

Finn Juhl was a pioneer in Danish design. In 1945 he designed this fantastic armchair, which was one of the first to break with tradition by freeing the seat and back from the frame. The result was an easy, elegant and tantalising expression that came to characterise Finn Juhl and make him world famous as an unrivalled designer. Model 45 is an example of high quality craftsmanship with carefully selected wood and upholstered with leather or fabric.
