A Bench or a Table – used for both, designed by Finn Juhl for Bovirke in 1953, as part of a series of furniture with a simple steel frame in burnished steel.
Finn Juhl had an international breakthrough in the USA in the early 1950s and achieved great fame; especially for his design of the United Nations Trusteeship Council Chamber in New York but also for his furniture and exhibitions. The Bench was part of the large travelling exhibition in North America “Design in Scandinavia”, which came to 22 cities from 1954 to 1957 with a total of approximately 650,000 visitors.
The Bench is a light, elegant and timeless designed piece of furniture.
