For centuries people have been fascinated by the perfect shape of a circle and have used it in everything from transport to decoration. Knowing that what is symmetrical and organic is naturally pleasing to the eye, but wanting to put a spin on an otherwise traditional shape, Finn Juhl decided to build upon the basic shape of a circle to create a new and exciting form.
Like the perfect circle, the Circle Bowl encompasses precision and carefully thought out proportions in all aspects. The sides are symmetrical and precisely balanced, as they rise as much as they recede and the angles and ratios of the bowl correspond all around. The uniformity of the shape creates a striking effect for all things that are placed inside the bowl, creating an extraordinary play of reflections.
Its distinctive uniqueness is further accentuated by being set to production for the first time ever, since it has been designed in 1954. Talk about discovering forgotten gems!
Perhaps the most famous and important force behind Modern Danish design movement of the 1940s and 1950s, Finn Juhl stands for simple, clever and no-frills approach to creation. The elegance and craftsmanship of his designs greatly influenced architects in the country, especially his use of bold sculptural forms and ultra-defined detailing.
Juhl liked to emphasize that he was educated as an all around architect, not merely a furniture architect. When designing, he always involved organic shapes and forms in his designs to create the most natural effect, bringing his signature soft touch to woods and metals.
In 1954 he created this unique bowl, utilizing the perfect shape of a circle for home use.
The Circle bowl is available in two sizes.
