Diplomat chair in rosewood designed by Finn Juhl and manufactured by Cado. Original vintage condition, can be reupholstered and refinished upon request. Marked with silver Finn Juhl label. Rather than thinking in terms of practical construction, Finn Juhl had the mind-set of a sculptor, when he shaped a piece of furniture. In the 1940s and 1950s, this way of working had never been seen before. His ambition was to design furniture with movement and life. Finn Juhl took pride in making both the structurally supportive elements of the furniture and the seated person look as though they are floating.
