First Finn Juhl hotel opens far from home

Danish design hotel opens in Nagano - one of Asia’s most popular destinations for skiing

The House of Finn Juhl Hotel Hakuba opened on December 1st and is the first of its kind, focusing on combining inspiring Danish interior, organic local products, and the raw Japanese nature.

The small town of Hakuba in Nagano, located in a valley surrounded by the Japanese alps, houses the newly renovated Danish/Japanese design hotel. The hotel is decorated entirely with Finn Juhl furniture and offers a unique design experience of the highest quality in the midst of beautiful surroundings and breathtaking nature.

Design and interior

The hotel consists of six double-rooms, a dining hall, several shared lounge areas, and an accompanying bar, with Finn Juhl’s organic furniture taking up the space in every room.

The well-known designs are beautifully “framed” by the black windows and exposed beams which stand in fine contrast to the light, wooden floors, and white walls.

Each room is decorated differently from the others. Each double room is named after the furniture - The Chieftain room, The Poet room, The Japan room, The Pelican room, The 46-room and The France room.

Comfortable as a home

The founders of Onecollection, Ivan Hansen and Hans Henrik Sørensen, have always focused on good relationships. This hotel will be no different.

- Our hotel has to be as cozy and comfortable as a home – decorated with Finn Juhl’s organic furniture from basement to attic. During daytime you can take up a variety of outdoor activities such as skiing, hiking, rafting, mountain biking or fishing, depending on the time of year. In the evening you can discover the Japanese rural-cuisine, says managing director Hans Henrik Sørensen.

House of Finn Juhl – The Concept

In year 2000, Finn Juhl’s widow, Hanne Wilhelm Hansen, granted Onecollection the rights to produce Finn Juhl's furniture. Since then, Onecollection has helped protect and carry on the legacy of Finn Juhl and today, the furniture is sold all over the world.

Onecollection already has a strong affiliation with Japan, as part of the Finn Juhl range is produced here. The production of Finn Juhl furniture is thus split between the Danish workshops and the Japanese workshop.

However, the vision for the Finn Juhl work has been even bigger from the onset. That is why stores with an explicit focus on displaying and selling Finn Juhl have opened around the world in recent years. These stores are called House of Finn Juhl.

And now, the Finn Juhl portfolio is expanding with the opening of the very first Hotel House of Finn Juhl.
