When Finn Juhl first saw this chair he immediately noticed its characteristic back and named it The Peacock Chair – a name which stuck with the chair.
Despite the chair’s almost postmodern design, it was actually manufactured as far back as 1947.
However, its consciously modern lines are not merely a matter of looks. Rather, the sweeping back with its extravagantly shaped sticks are a feat of ergonomic aesthetics. The flat part of the sticks, which gives it its peacock-like appearance, are placed where the shoulder-blades meet the chair’s back.
