J104 Dining Chair is part of HAY's 2011 relaunch of the Danish furniture classics originally made for FDB (The Danish Consumers’Co-operative Society).
Functionalist and democratic design for the people - that was the main idea behind the furniture production started by FDB in the 1940s. By shifting to industrial production and thus deceasing the costs FDB pushed forward the availability of designer furniture for ordinary people by making high quality design furniture at relatively low prices.
The J104 dining chair is designed by Jorgen Baekmark and is made from beech wood in natural wood and 4 colours.
A great little chair by Jorgen Baekmark. Danish and other Scandinavian designers were greatly influenced by the American Shaker movement, most notably the designers that worked for the Danish Furniture Co-op (FDB) such as Borge Mogensen, Poul Volther, Ejvind Johansson and Jorgen Baekmark. FDB's mandate was to provide affordable, well designed furniture for the mass Danish market and the Shaker movement provided influence to accomplish this. This particular chair is a simple but functional piece providing a variety of uses. Whether used as a dining, occasional or desk chair, it performs well in all cases. The deep backrest is supported by solid wood dowels and also acts as a short armrest.
Wood: solid beech, soap treated or lacquered: black, white, grey or coral
Dimensions: 47 x 57 x 73 cm (width x depth x height). Seat height: 44,5 cm
HAY was founded in 2002 with the ambition to create contemporary furniture that uses sophisticated industrial manufacturing to satisfy the needs of modern living. Today, this fundamental goal remains our mission: through our commitment to the design and production of furniture, lighting and accessories with an international appeal, we strive to make good design accessible to the largest possible audience.
Inspired by the stable structures of architecture and the dynamics of fashion, HAY combines the values of both industries in durable, quality products that provide added value for the user. HAY’s continued vision is to create straightforward, functional and aesthetic design in cooperation with some of the world’s most talented, curious and courageous designers. This results in many fruitful collaborations.
