The FJ Bowl is the smallest of the sought-after teakwood bowl series that Finn Juhl designed in 1951. It features the characteristic blend of organic shapes and balance between wood, form and geometric measurements that made Juhl famous. By contrasting the undulating pattern of the teakwood with the rim, Juhl uses design to further reveal the natural properties of the material at hand: depending on what angle you look at it from, the bowl changes shape, creating new relationships at every turn while slowly growing on you.
A stability of construction harmonized with a unique expression of form distinguishes Finn Juhl’s 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, especially in mid-century modern design.
This bowl captures the essence of Juhl’s philosophy and exemplifies the quality of craftsmanship and beauty that made Denmark a leader in design during the 1950’s. The wood bowl is hewn out of a single piece of teak.
"One cannot create happiness with beautiful objects, but one can ruin quite a lot of happiness with bad ones." -Finn Juhl
