Exhibition about Finn Juhl at the Nationalmuseum in Stockholm
In this spring, the Danish architect Finn Juhl and his unique design get renewed international attention. This happens when Sweden’s leading art museum, the newly renovated Nationalmuseum in Stockholm, opens the doors to the exhibition Finn Juhl: Architectural Furniture Designer. The exhibition is arranged in collaboration with Ordrupgaard and represents a large part of the museum’s collection of Finn Juhl. The exhibition is the first major international exhibition about Finn Juhl in recent times. The event is thus a bit of a sensation and marks the steadily increasing international attention about Finn Juhl and his work.
Finn Juhl is known as one of the leading Scandinavian furniture designers in the 1940s to the 1960s. His pronounced perfectionism about the detail, sense of materials and innovative approach to furniture designs has made him known and loved by design enthusiasts far beyond the borders of Denmark, where his formidable design is in high course. The furniture was usually produced in small series in collaboration with cabinetmaker Niels Vodder. But Finn Juhl was also one of the first Danish designers who designed furniture for a larger scale production.
Ordrupgaard is closed during the construction of the museum’s new extension designed by the Norwegian architect company Snøhetta. The closing period has enabled the extensive lending to the Nationalmuseum in Stockholm. Ordrupgaard is expected to re-open in 2020.
The exhibition Finn Juhl: Architectural Furniture Designer is on view at the Nationalmuseum in Stockholm from 14 March until 22 September 2019.
