Finn Juhl

FJ Bowl Salad & Fruit

$1,600.00
Style: Fruit Bowl With Toes

Made to order masterpiece

With his sculptural approach to design and his inspiration from art, Finn Juhl created this selection of delicate hand turned wooden bowls in 1951. They represent Finn Juhl’s design aesthetic in its purest form. The organic shapes and warm teak combined with carefully thought out dimensions. Designed as a perfect circle creating an illusion of an ellipse, they offer a new expression at every turn.

The FJ Bowls come as fruit and salad bowls. They are ‘made to order’, so we cut the wood after you place an order. All bowls are made from a single block of teak wood, which is turned and polished by hand. It is a meticulous and complex woodwork, so we invite everyone to follow this special journey by sending updates and pictures of the process.


 

Artistic vision

Finn Juhl

As one of the many Danish architects in the 1950’s, Finn Juhl stands out as one of the most successful international breakthroughs. To date he is one of Denmark’s most famous architects, known for his bold, sculptural forms and ultra-refined detailing. Surprisingly, unlike his fellow classmates, Juhl entered the Royal Academy of Fine Arts, Architecture in Copenhagen in 1930 without any experience as a craftsman.

What he lacked in structural experience, he made up for in vision, crafting his designs from an artist’s mindset. Juhl’s forms balance sculptural and elegant expression with functionality.

This combination energised traditional Danish Design, exemplifying the quality, craftsmanship and beauty that helped the country become a leader in modern home furnishings in the 1940-50’s.

Juhl’s work had a great influence on the following generations of Scandinavian design. He went on to design the Trusteeship Council Chamber in the United Nations Headquarters in New York as a gift from Denmark to the UN and is renowned for stating, “One cannot create happiness with beautiful objects, but one can ruin quite a lot of happiness with bad ones.”
