In 1953, Finn Juhl designed this simple yet elegant dining chair for the furniture manufacturer Bovirke, which we have relaunched under the name the Reading Chair. This chair is perfectly fit for private homes, hotels, restaurants and conference facilities alike.
Finn Juhl designed the Reading Chair as both a dining room chair and as a reading chair. It is designed to be equally comfortable whether you choose to sit facing the front or the back. This might sound both odd and complicated, but thanks to Finn Juhl’s genius, the result was a simple, unpretentious, yet thoroughly well-designed and visually pleasing chair.
The Reading Chair is manufactured in oak with a backrest and top piece in walnut. The chair is also available in a fully black painted variant. The seat is upholstered with either fabric or leather. The Reading chair is now also available with a veneered walnut seat.
Relaunched by House of Finn Juhl in 2015
