The historic space showcases the brand’s most iconic pieces
House of Finn Juhl – the renowned Danish design pioneer best known for iconic pieces including the Chieftan Armchair and the 108 Dining Chair – has started the next chapter of the brand’s story with the opening of a new Copenhagen outpost.
Located in the heart of the city in the historic Wilhelm Hansen House, just a stone’s throw from the bustling Kongens Nytorv, the showroom – House of Finn Juhl – marks the firm’s permanent move from the former location along the Frederiksgade street.
Serving as an exquisite backdrop to Finn Juhl’s streamlined goods, the space – formerly occupied by a fashion retailer – boasts an elaborate history dating back to 1879. Owned by the Wilhelm Hansen family, who were one of Scandinavia’s largest music publishers, the house was a favourite stamping ground of Denmark’s most respected artists, from H.C. Andersen and Carl Nielsen to the modern music of Per Nørgaard, Herman D. Koppel and Niels Viggo Bentzon.
Open by appointment, the showroom will present a rotating display of established and new pieces, including the recent relaunch of FJ 53, which made its debut during 3 Days of Design. Furthermore, House of Finn Juhl will also feature contemporary offerings by Onecollection, such as art, lamps and other decorative objects.
Commenting on the new opening, Ivan Hansen, founder and co-owner of Onecollection / House of Finn Juhl says, “Relocating the showroom is the result of a very special collaboration with the Wilhelm Hansen Foundation. They have given us the unique opportunity to present Finn Juhl’s greatest designs in a very special place.”
The Wilhelm Hansen Foundation and Finn Juhl hold the rights to Finn Juhl’s designs. Every year, the foundation presents the Finn Juhl Design Award. The main objective of the foundation is to support performing artists in music, dance and theatre by granting awards and scholarships to individuals and projects alike.
