Finn Juhl's Fantastic Modernist Home

As a lover of Danish Modernism I was delighted to discover this video featuring the home of Danish architect and furniture designer Finn Juhl. Located in the Danish town of Charlottenlund (just north of Copenhagen), Juhl’s home is a textbook example of his architecture and furniture design.

Built in 1942, the house features a large living room, a small study, a kitchen, dining room, bedrooms and a bathroom. It contains everything a modernist designer from the 40s would need and it’s both an early example functionalism and of open-plan design. During his time living there Juhl furnished it with many of his own creations and the video below is a wonderful introduction to his furniture and design work.

In 1989 Juhl passed away and his home was left untouched. In 2003 it opened as a museum, and it can still be visited today by the public. The video was created by Thorsten Dreijer at Dankvart Film and it is a wonderfully peaceful tour around Juhl’s home. For those interested, the music featured is by famous Swedish pianist Jan Johansson. I hope you enjoy!
