Circle Bowl by Finn Juhl
- The Designer
- The Maker
Like the perfect circle, the Circle Bowl encompasses precision and carefully thought out proportions in all aspects. The sides are symmetrical and precisely balanced, as they rise as much as they recede and the angles and ratios of the bowl correspond all around. The uniformity of the shape creates a striking effect for all things that are placed inside the bowl, creating an extraordinary play of reflections.
Its distinctive uniqueness is further accentuated by being set to production for the first time ever, since it has been designed in 1954. Talk about discovering forgotten gems!

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."
