This vibrant book delves into the history of the Trusteeship Council Chamber at the United Nations Headquarters, a true ‘Gesamtkunstwerk’ designed by Danish architect and interior and industrial designer Finn Juhl. Inaugurated in 1952, it has since been named a part of Denmark’s cultural heritage, carefully restored and revitalised with modern furniture designed by Salto & Sigsgaard.

The book is filled with illustrations, including historical photographs, sketches, and other material, plus new photographs by Ole Madsen. With a foreword by Michael Sheridan, a leading authority on Scandinavian architecture and design, and an essay by Danish architecture critic Karsten R.S. Ifversen.
