Early Finn Juhl for France and Daverkosen FD532 Teak Coffee Table, Denmark 1950s

About

Early production example of the Model FD 532 Finn Juhl for France and Daverkosen teak coffee table. This particular example is using teak from the France and Daverkosen days, demonstrated by the FD stamped logo underneath the table (see photos), and also equipped with the early France & Son gold metal circular tag, dating this fine example to the late 1950s. This is truly a piece for the avid collector or discriminating buyer. By one of 20th century's most coveted designers, Finn Juhl, this understated coffee table is crafted from solid teak with beautifully sculpted edges along the tray-like top with linear tapered molded legs and apron stretcher. This coffee table would work great in a Mid-Century Modern, Scandanavian Modern or Danish modern home or penthouse apartment but could also look fantastic in a contemporary or Postmodern room. Also consider mixing it up in a traditional, transitional, classical or Art Deco room with a splash of juxtaposition. Would also be an apt choice in a commercial project such as a hotel lobby lounge, creative design studio or high-rise executive office. Condition: Very good to excellent original vintage condition. Sturdy and structurally sound. Light vintage wear, cared for by a long time collector. Provenance to be provided upon purchase. Provenance: Collection of a German Collector. Name to be provided upon purchase. Measurements: H 17.5 " x W 69" x D 23.5".

About Finn Juhl (Designer)

Along with Hans Wegner, Arne Jacobsen and Børge Mogensen, Finn Juhl was one of the great masters of mid-20th-century Danish design. Juhl was the first among that group to have his work promoted overseas, bringing the character of the nation’s furnishings — and the inherent principles of grace, craftsmanship and utility on which they were based — to an international audience. A stylistic maverick, Juhl embraced expressive, free-flowing shapes in chair and sofa designs much earlier than his colleagues, yet even his quietest pieces incorporate supple, curving forms that are at once elegant and ergonomic.

     As a young man, Juhl hoped to become an art historian, but his father steered him into a more practical course of study in architecture. He began designing furniture in the late 1930s, a discipline in which, despite his education, Juhl was self-taught, and quite proud of the fact. His earliest works, designed in the late 1930s, are perhaps his most idiosyncratic. The influence of contemporary art is clear in Juhl's 1939 “Pelican” chair: an almost Surrealist take on the classic wing chair. Critics reviled the piece, however; one said it looked like a "tired walrus." Juhl had tempered his creativity by 1945, when the Danish furniture-making firm Niels Vodder began to issue his designs. Yet his now-classic “NV 45” armchair still demonstrates panache, with a seat that floats above the chair’s teak frame.

     Juhl first exhibited his work in the United States in 1950, championed by Edgar Kaufmann Jr., an influential design critic and scion of America’s most prominent family of modern architecture and design patrons. (Kaufmann’s father commissioned Frank Lloyd Wright’s design of the house “Fallingwater.”) Juhl quickly won a following for such signature designs as the supremely comfortable “Chieftan” lounge chair, the biomorphic “Baker” sofa, and the “Judas” table, a piece ornamented with stylish inlaid silver plaquettes. As you will see from the offerings on these pages, Finn Juhl’s furniture — as well as his lighting, ceramics, tableware and accessories — has an air of relaxed sophistication and elegance that is unique in the realm of mid-20th- century design.
