Upholstered fabric chair
The Egyptian Chair - Dining Chair in walnut or teak, 1949.
Design historians have described Juhl’s Egyptian Chair as a miraculous mix of ancient Egyptian design principles combined with influences from modern rhythm, aerodynamics and fast cars.
The Chair first made its debut together with the famous Chieftain Chair at the annual Copenhagen Cabinetmakers Guild Exhibition in 1949. Both chairs demonstrated Juhl’s unique genius and prompted an international interest for Danish design, which later acknowledged Finn Juhl as the Father of the Danish Modern style of design.
