Relaunch of an 1950’s Danish Design Chair by Finn Juhl

Furniture manufacturer Onecollection has relaunched a 1956 chair by Finn Juhl, which played an important role in the proliferation of danish design.

Finn Juhl designed FJ 136, as the chair was originally called, for France & Son for the American market in 1956. It became – along with a number of other Finn Juhl designs – a great success.

The chair was designed for industrial production and has a more simple expression than many of Juhl’s other chairs. Nevertheless, the chair’s organic shapes and distinct design characteristics are typical for Finn Juhl’s designs.

The light wooden frame and the liberated upholstered elements – which seem to float as if they were freed from the law of gravity – make the chair seem almost aerodynamic.

The story of the chair’s impact on the country’s export market is outlined in a new book by France’s son James.

It describes how C W F France came to Denmark in the 1930s to help a friend run his mattress factory, but was sent to Germany as a prisoner during the second world war.

During his time in prison, he formulated a business plan that he put into practice when he returned to Denmark in the 1950s.

The chair was aimed at the American market, and has since been credited with helping to grow the international market for danish furniture.

Juhl – who died in 1989 – was a Danish architect, interior and industrial designer, but was best known for his furniture such as the wing-backed Pelican chair.

Onecollection received permission from James France to rename FJ 136 as the France chair. It is available in beech, oak or black-stained versions, and with either leather or fabric upholstery, from Paris showroom Triode.

Mid-century Danish design has seen revival in popularity over the past few years. Brands including Carl Hansen & Son, PP Møbler and Fritz Hansen all have delved into their archives and reissued iconic furniture pieces by designers including Hans J Wegner, Arne Jacobsen.
