By 1951, Finn Juhl was well respected in America. His work was sought after from all directions and his name common currency amongst the elite.
In that year, he was commissioned to design the interior setting of the “Good Design” exhibit held in Chicago and at MoMA, which helped promote Danish Modern to an international Audience.
It was also the year that Juhl was appointed to design a chamber at the New York United Nations building. Now known as the Finn Juhl Chamber it is still one of the most popular rooms in the building.
And finally, it was also in 1951 where Baker Furniture requested Juhl design them a sofa. Now known as the Baker Sofa this couch highlights Juhl’s love of modern art. The moving mobiles of Alexander Calder were a primary influence, reflected in the way the top of the sofa is suspended over the middle. It added a feeling of lightness to a design that would otherwise feel quite substantial. The lounge is still available through One Collection.
