Finn Juhl designed the Sideboard with coloured sliding doors and trays in 1955 for Bovirke. It is part of a serie with cubist wood cabinets that float on a steel frame with wood “feet” and in particular the colours which Finn Juhl arranged throughout the 1950s and 60s. The colour elements reflected his fascination with Goethe’s colour circle, which placed the colours in a harmonious cohesion.
The Finn Juhl collection is handcrafted in Danemark and some pieces in Japan in collaboration with the Wilhelm Hansen foundation (Finn Juhl’s spouse).
His furniture reflects an emphasis on craftsmanship and organic forms. Finn Juhl created an historic design that came to have international consequences for Denmark as a design nation. His style became known as Danish Modern.
