The Egyptian Chair first made its debut with the famous Chieftain Chair at the annual Copenhagen Cabinetmakers Guild Exhibition in 1949. Both chairs demonstrated Juhls unique genius and prompted an international interest for Danish design, which later acknowledged Finn Juhl as the Father of the Danish Modern style of design.
Design historians have described Juhls Egyptian Chair as a miraculous mix of ancient Egyptian design principles combined with influences from rhythm, aerodynamics and speed.
