Finn Juhl ARTISTIC VISION Finn Juhl was born in 1912. He graduated from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts. He is one of the most acclaimed Danish architects from the 1950’s. He is known for his bold, sculptural forms and ultra-refined detailing. Although Finn Juhl was never a skilled craftsman like many of his colleagues in the 1950’s and 60’s, he made up for it in vision and aesthetic thinking.

FJ Pattern INGENIOUS PATTERN FJ Pattern is the name of a series of textiles based on the ingenious patterns created by Finn Juhl in 1954. Working with watercolours Finn Juhl developed his own range of characteristic colour combinations and patterns, the bold use of which became an integrated element of Juhl’s work in architecture and design. He used the colourful patterns to create surfaces, accents and contrasts; to bind together interior design and architecture; to create subtle atmospheric spaces, which would make people feel good. With this unique collection ARCHITECTMADE translates into textiles Juhl’s special sense of shape and colour into textiles. Material Blue/Grey organic cotton Dimensions Throw: H140 L210 cm Bedspread: H220 L260 cm Pillows: H50 L50 cm, H40 L60 cm

Turning Tray MADE TO FIT YOUR LIFE The Turning Tray was designed in 1956 by Finn Juhl, bearing his trademark curved teak frame and precise corner joints.

These handmade trays are exactly to Finn Juhl’s specifications, with curves, colors and discreet details that all reveals his fantastic sense for design. Material Teak wood and laminate - Black desert & Alaska white, Black desert & Kimono red, Black desert & Husky green and Black desert & Blue angel.

FJ Bowl SIMPLE DESIRE The FJ Bowl is the smallest of the teakwood bowl series that Finn Juhl designed in 1951. It features the characteristic blend of organic shapes and balance between wood, form and geometric measurements that made Juhl famous. Finn Juhl uses design to reveal the natural properties of the material: depending on the angle from which you view the bowl, it changes shape. The FJ Bowl is made of a single piece of teak wood and treated with clear teak oil, allowing the bowl to develop a beautiful patina as it ages. Material Teak wood Dimensions H5 D15 cm

Circle Bowl FORGOTTEN GEM The Circle Bowl is designed as a perfect circle, yet visually it creates the illusion of an ellipse. The sides of the bowl are precisely balanced, rising as much as they recede, creating perfectly corresponding lines of the bowl all around. The uniformity creates striking reflections for all things placed within. Crafted from the highest quality, mirror polished stainless steel, the Circle Bowl’s organic shape is formed by walls of 1 mm thickness. Material Mirror polished stainless steel Dimensions Small: D20 cm Large: D30 cm

FJ Essence THE ESSENCE OF FINN JUHL FJ Essence illuminates the unique aesthetics of Finn Juhl. The crisp white and hand glazed surface curvatures into those well-known organic shapes that have made Finn Juhl famous on an international level. Originally Finn Juhl designed FJ Essence in 1952 but it never went into production because of the complex shape of the porcelain. After 60 years, ARCHITECTMADE redisovered the old drawings and made FJ Essence possible to manufacture in its originally lean design. Material Hand-glazed white porcelain Dimensions Cup: L12 W9,5 H6 cm - 16 cl Saucer: L15 W15 H2,5 cm Teapot: L21,5 W13 H12 cm - 96 cl Sugar bowl: L11 W10,5 H7,1 cm - 28 cl

FJ Clock TIMELESS AND STREAMLINED The FJ Clock was designed as a part of the interior of the New York United Nation Trusteeship Council Chamber in 1950 and it captures the essence of Juhl’s design aesthetic. The concave shape complementing the natural qualities of the wood and the numberless aluminum dial captures his flair for clever minimalism. It is crafted with a unique precision that offers a harmony that underlines what a work of art the FJ Clock truly is. Each FJ Clock is unique, displaying its own wood pattern. Material FJ Clock: Teak wood FJ Clock - Black: Stained ash wood Dimensions FJ Clock: D35 cm FJ Clock - Black 25: D25 cm FJ Clock - Black 35: D35 cm
