Designed by Finn Juhl for his wife, Hanne Wilhelm Hansen, the artistic jewellery box design is a dynamic reinvention of the traditional chest of draws. Taking inspiration from a glove cabinet, the slender draws, defined by a spectrum of beautiful, bold colours create an elegant storage space for the home. Crafted from exclusive solid Japanese cherry wood, finished with subtle brass detailing, the luxurious design is iconic in style; an extraordinary tribute to both the past, present and the future.
Finn Juhl was born on the 30th January 1912 in Frederiksberg, Denmark.
Although trained in architecture, it was his modern furniture designs that made him an international name. His first pieces of furniture were designed for his own apartment and were manufactured by the young Danish carpenter, Niels Vodder.
In 1946 Juhl got his first major interior assignment at Bing and Grøndahl’s store at Amagertorv in Copenhagen. This later became one of his main works and was awarded with the Eckersberg Medal in 1947. Soon after, he was given the opportunity to help furnish the new headquarters of the United Nations in NY - something which established his name with the American audience.
