    Finn Juhl, Interiør -52 Steffen Wesselvold Holden

Danish architect Finn Juhl (1912-1989) was commissioned in 1950 by the museum to create an office interior which would work in a dialogue with Interior Henry van de Velde. The result was a room which is authentic fot the Scandinavian Design period, and the items displayed in this interior represent the best of Scandinavian design in the time. Like van de Velde's interior, this interior also is the result of an understanding ot the whole, with a composition based on "directions and surfaces playing off each other" - adjusted to the movements of the human body.
