Reissued in 2022, the Whisky Chair sees Juhl at his most creative and artistic, with a deep sense of shape, function and detail converging to create one of the most impressive lounge chairs of our time. Crafted from expertly worked American walnut and upholstered by hand in Kjellerup Væveri's celebrated watercolour fabric, the chair exudes a true sense of luxury, grace and style. Featuring brass feet and a matching brass fold-out tray, each chair comes complete with its own glass, made especially for this edition by renowned mouth-blown glassmaker Mikkel Yerst, capping the chair off perfectly.
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.
