I have recently discovered (how did I miss this news?) that in Japan, in Hakuba – Nagano, the House of Finn Juhl Hotel Hakuba. was opened.
It is a boutique hotel entirely furnished with pieces created by Finn Juhl, one of the leading Danish architects and designers and considered one of the “founding fathers” of the Nordic style.
Hakuba in Nagano is a ski resort, surrounded by mountains as high as 3000 and where more than 100 ski slopes can be found. The area is famous above all for the snow that falls all winter but also for the Onsen, natural geothermal pools, and for the mountain monkeys.
House of Finn Juhl Hotel Hakuba is therefore a charming place, perfect for those who love Scandinavian design but also nature and Japanese tradition.
The hotel is fully furnished with furniture designed by Finn Juhl, thus offering a unique immersive design experience. For example, you can find the classic Chieftain Chair, the 46 chair and the Reading Chair or the Nyhavn dining table or the Glove Cabinet.
The hotel consists of six double rooms, a dining room, various lounge areas and a bar.
Each room is named after the iconic piece of Finn Juhl that you will find inside the room. There is for example the Poet Room, in reference to the Poet Sofa designed in 1941, or the Pelican Room, inspired by the Pelican chair of 1940. In the Japan Room, you will find instead the sofa that is part of the Japan Series designed by Finn Juhl in 1954.
The project was born in collaboration with onecollection, the brand that in 2000 received the rights, granted by the widow of Finn Juhl, for the production of her husband’s furniture.
