|In 1951 Finn Juhl was appointed as chief designer and architect at the exhibition Good Design in Chicago. In the same year, the Academic Council at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts tasks Finn Juhl with what will become his most prominent and famous design manifestation – the complete furnishing and design of the Trusteeship Council Chamber at the headquarters of the United Nations in New York. The chamber becomes an important milestone in coining the international term known as Danish Modern. Today the chamber is most commonly referred to as the “Finn Juhl Chamber”.|
