This chair is an example of Finn Juhl’s most beautiful work. It was originally designed for the 1946 Copenhagen Cabinetmakers’ Guild Exhibition for master cabinetmaker Niels Vodder. In 1953, Juhl modified the chair into a simpler, more aerodynamic version for the furniture manufacturer Bovirke. It is this latter version, that Onecollection has re-launched.
In his second version, Finn Juhl clearly attempted to emphasize the lightness of the chair by separating the carried and the carrying elements. Similarly to the Chieftain Chair and the 45 Chair, the 46 Chair represents the very best in modern Danish furniture design. Thanks to modern technology the re-launched version is manufactured in outstanding quality with stronger joints than the original.
The 46 Chair is manufactured in oak, walnut and teak with leather or wool upholstery.
