Description

Finn Juhl is one of Denmark’s most famous architects, known for his bold, sculptural forms and ultra-refined detailing. Unlike his fellow classmates, Juhl entered the Royal Academy of Fine Arts, Architecture in Copenhagen in 1930 without any experience as a craftsman. What he lacked in structural experience, he made up for in vision, crafting his designs from an artist’s mindset. Juhl’s forms perfectly balance sculptural and elegant expression with functionality.

The FJ Clock was designed as a part of the interior of the New York United Nation Trusteeship Council Chamber in 1950 and it captures the essence of Juhl’s design aesthetic. The circular shape complementing the natural qualities of the teak wood and the numberless aluminum dial captures his flair for clever minimalism.
