The iconic Grasshopper chair was first exhibited in 1938 at Niels Vodder's stand at the Copenhagen Guild Exhibition. In a time where 'heavy', traditional furniture dominated, the Grasshopper proved to be quite the divisive piece, with many not in favour of the chair's artistic, expressive appearance. Relaunched by House of Finn Juhl, the chair has now become known and respected as one of Juhl's most pioneering, dynamic designs. With the chair's grounded legs giving the impression of a grasshopper about to jump, the low-level, slender frame, combined with a tall, enclosed seat, create a highly comforting, cocooned space. A truly dynamic design, the Grasshopper Chair embodies Juhl's status as a pioneer of furniture design. The House of Finn Juhl Grasshopper Lounge Chair is a very powerful masterpiece that embodies prized Danish furniture design.
