The Danish architect and designer Finn Juhl is considered one of Scandinavia's most influential designers in modern furniture design. Between 1930 and 1934, he studied at the "Kunstakadamiets Arkitektskole", and as a student, he worked with the Danish architect Vilhelm Lauritzen. Later in his career, he worked on a series of prestigious assignments as a furniture designer in Denmark and internationally, including the UN headquarters in New York and the Danish embassy in Washington.

In his work with furniture design, Juhl was inspired by the art of sculpture and the sculptor's way of working with forms and materials. He let material and form work together, and he drew his inspiration from the shape of the human body.

Juhl's furniture, which he made in collaboration with cabinet maker Niels Vodder, made a significant mark in furniture design with models such as "The Chieftain chair" and "Grasshopper".
