Paul Smith hosts a celebration of Danish design at his London flagship shop featuring a new collaboration of iconic Finn Juhl furniture matched with Paul Smith Maharam fabrics. The new exhibition takes place at Paul Smith No. 9 Albemarle Street and will run from September 16th to October 14th, covering both the London Design Festival and Frieze London.
This collaboration brings together two designers who share similar values. Finn Juhl’s work is often defined by its unique details, constant surprises and an underlying sense of joy – all of which could readily apply to the work of Paul Smith.
“Some countries are known for their food, others for their sporting prowess, Danes are known for their design abilities”, says Paul Smith. “It’s just in their blood and Finn Juhl is one of the best examples of this.”
The exhibition features a wide range of Finn Juhl designs, with special attention given to a number of exclusive collaboration pieces upholstered with Paul-Smith-designed Maharam fabric. Within the wider exhibition, the FJ Sideboard and Glove Cabinet feature a collection of colourful trays, which could easily be mistaken for a signature Paul Smith stripe.
