Finn Juhl Bwana chair model 152. Solid teak frame, back and seat and loose cushions upholstered with sand wool. Designed in 1961. Produced by France & Son, Denmark. Measurements: 92 cm (height) x 87 cm (width) x 73 cm (depth) x 44cm (seat height).
Rare and gorgeous "Bwana" lounge chair by Finn Juhl, other than the chieftan chair this is probably his most sought after design.
The Bwana chair is heavily influenced by traditional African styles but is quintessentially Danish. Gorgeous wood graining, a sculptural teak form and exposed frame with carved round armrests. The details of the chair construction are wonderful such as the finger jointing on the back bar.
