The association of Finn Juhl with the furniture manufacturer France & Son resulted in a series of furniture very suitable for industrial production, while remaining faithful to the ideals of simple designs that reigned in the 1950 decade.
The most famous example of this cooperation is probably the Japan series of 1953, which consists of an armchair and a two-seater and three-seater sofa.
The sublime simplicity of this series is far from its previous furniture designs and is inspired by traditional Japanese construction techniques. The solid horizontal backrest, resting on the slightly narrow legs, is a reference to the door of a Japanese temple. The backrest ends in a circular recess, adding an optically refined impression with great effect. That was very typical of Finn Juhl, who said the difference is in the details.
Even with this simple construction, Finn Juhl is faithful to his idea of emphasizing the difference between the subject elements and those of supports by separating the backrest of the frame with brass supports. The Japan series is produced in oak or walnut with hand-woven upholstery in fabric.
Details: Price for 3 sofa seats with walnut structure and upholstered backrest in Tonus 4 0854 fabric and seat in Tonus 4 0764. Seat height of 35 cm.
