A merger of styles and cultures has taken place in a boutique hotel dedicated to a famed Danish designer in Japan. The House of Finn Juhl Hotel Hakuba combines the inimitable design of Danish mid-century furniture by one of Denmark’s foremost furniture, architectural and industrial designers with the minimalist sensibilities of Japanese hospitality. Located in the village of Hakuba in the Japanese Alps, the Hotel Hakuba is operated by the House of Fnn Juhl, a branch of Danish furniture makers OneCollection that was given permission by Juhl’s widow upon his death to produce his iconic furniture and carry on his legacy worldwide. The Hotel Hakuba forms part of this preservation of memory, and invests more into Juhl’s Japanese connection. His furniture has always been much respected in Japan and now part of his furniture collection is produced there, so it follows that the creation of a boutique hotel in which his furniture and design takes centre stage finds its natural habitat in the small town of Hakuba.
