Finn Juhl was highly inspired by Japan, and in Japan there is a sustained and great interest in Finn Juhl. House of Finn Juhl celebrates the bond to Japan with 25 limited Chieftain chairs made in Hokkaido oak.
Normally, the Chieftain chair is only available in teak or walnut and has never been produced in oak before. Hokkaido oak is a slowly growing and valuable kind of wood from the northern Hokkaido area of Japan. Each chair is numbered and comes with a special brass plate under the chair and a signed certificate.
The limited edition of the Chieftain chair in Hokkaido oak is currently on display at the Trapholt museum in Denmark. Australian collectors looking for their own piece of Danish design history can get more information from Danish Red.
