Denmark is one of the most exciting countries when it comes to design. It has one of the richest design legacy with names that not only ring a bell but all bells of all kind of domes. One of the iconic names from Danish design is Finn Juhl, an architect with a vision for elegance and craftsmanship in the mid-century period of the 1940s and 1950s.
Finn Juhl’s designs have strongly influenced the country’s architects and designers, especially his use of bold sculptural forms and refined detailing. Juhl once said: ‘One cannot create happiness with beautiful objects, but can spoil a lot of happiness with bad ones.’ And since this is the Happy Interior Blog where I am overly concerned about your happiness at home, I will try not to ruin your happiness – instead I am pretty sure I will make you a tad happy when I tell you that I’ve partnered up with ARCHITECTMADE, a Danish webshop that focuses on a few, rare design objects designed by some of Denmark’s greatest architects many years ago, to offer you a great giveaway.
Today I am inviting you to enjoy a cup of coffee with me on the beautiful Turning Tray designed by Finn Juhl in 1956. Today the original trays are on display at Finn Juhl’s house in Denmark (now a museum). Architectmade has relaunched the Turning Trays after the exact original drawings by Finn Juhl with utmost attention to the details. The Turning Tray encompasses characteristic design features like curved teak frame and corner joints that are Finn Juhl trademarks and they are dual-sided with different colours. The new trays also come with a laser engraved signature from Finn Juhl.
Do you want such a Turning Tray from Finn Juhl for your home too? Excellent! All you have to do is go and pick your colour of choice HERE and tell me which one you’d like in the comments under this blog post. The giveaway will be running until coming Friday, April 17th 2015 and is open worldwide. Good luck!
