watch: House of Finn Juhl
A tour of architect/designer Finn Juhl's house in Denmark, accompanied by a ‘60s Swedish jazz soundtrack, feels like the 9 minute 10 second video we all need right now. One of mid-century modernism’s greats, Juhl, like many of his contemporaries, combined architectural work with furniture design and is now possibly best known for his elegant chair collection, many of which feature in this beautiful film. Built in 1942, now open to the public, his home in Ordrup, a suburb of Copenhagen, looks relatively ordinary from the outside. The devil is in the detail however, something captured perfectly in this charming video from filmmaker Thorsten Dreijer.
