The Grasshopper chair was designed by Finn Juhl in 1938 and exhibitied at Niels Vodder’s stand at the Guild Exhibition. Two chairs were displayed alongside a mobile bar cabinet, with illustrations of exquisite cocktails hanging on the walls. This was quite a daring set-up and extravagant when compared to the otherwise “heavy” and traditional furniture that was presented at the time.The Grasshopper was one of Finn Juhl’s first attempts at expressing his artistic freedom in the form of furniture. The chair also marks the first in a long line of designs, that would go on to manifest Finn Juhl as one of the all-time greatest in furniture design. Like the name suggests, the Grasshopper chair stands like the insect, and despite its apparent simplicity, exceedingly hard to construct due to its tricky angles, joints and complex shapes.The Grasshopper is available in oak and walnut and upholstered in textile or leather.
