Danish furniture designer Finn Juhl helped start the midcentury’s embrace of Danish modernism with such classics as the Pelican chair (shown). He would have been 100 this past January, and so exhibits celebrating his works have appeared in Gifu and Tokyo, Japan, and now, in Seoul, South Korea. An exhibit of Juhl’s work selected from the chair collection of author Oda Noritsugu (Danish Chairs, 1999), runs through Sept. 23. Juhl. Next year, Juhl will be honored in New York when the U.N.’s Council Chambers, which he designed, are reopened following a faithful restoration. •
