Designed by Finn Juhl in 1949 and today an icon within Danish furniture art.
The Chieftains Chair is one of Finn Juhl’s absolute masterpieces designed at the peak of his career. When it was presented in 1949, the Chieftain Chair marked a renewal of Danish furniture design. Finn Juhl picked up vital inspiration from the contemporary art scene of the time as well as art and tools from ancient cultures. His masterpieces from the 1940’s and especially The Chieftains Chair became of decisive importance for the breakthrough of Danish Modern in the USA in the 50’s. Therefore Finn Juhl is often called The Father of Danish Design.
It is upholstered in leather.
The Danish Design Award Classics 2012 went to Finn Juhl’s Chieftains Chair.
