Finn Juhl designed the FJ Clock as a part of the interior of the New York United Nations Trusteeship Council Chamber in 1950. The circular and concave shape compliments the natural qualities of the teak and ash wood, while the aluminum dots capture Finn Juhl's flair for minimalism. Its aluminum minute and hour hands are also curved slightly along the wooden clock face. It is crafted with a precision that offers harmony, and it is a work of art.

Each FJ Clock has its own unique wood pattern, and it comes in teak or black-stained ash.

Finn Juhl
The work of architect Finn Juhl (1912—1989) energized traditional Danish design. It exemplifies the quality of craftsmanship and beauty that made the nation a leader in modern home furnishing during the 1940s and 1950s.

Juhl was trained as an all-round building architect, not—as he emphasized—especially as a furniture designer. On several occasions, he pointed out that as a furniture designer, he was purely self-taught.

His early chairs were produced in small batches, eighty at most, because they were created for Guild shows where the work of the artisan was emphasized over the burgeoning industry of mass production. However, they were almost all reissued later in his career.

In 1951 he designed the Trusteeship Council Chamber in the United Nations Headquarters in New York as a gift from Denmark to the UN.

A stability of construction harmonized with a unique expression of form distinguishes his works. His fondness for teak as a material led him to develop new and superior techniques for its use, and he is responsible for the present popularity of teak in Danish furniture.

Finn Juhl had a great influence on the following generation of Scandinavian architects with his use of bold sculptural forms and ultra-refined detailing. Juhl once said: "One cannot create happiness with beautiful objects, but one can ruin quite a lot of happiness with bad ones."
