design Folke Pålsson, 1960’

The J77 dining chair has been designed by Folke Pålsson and is made from beech wood in natural wood and in 5 different stained colours. The J77 Chair is part of Hay's 2011 relaunch of the Danish furniture classics originally made for FDB, the Danish Consumers’ Co-operative Society. FDB’s furniture production started in the 1940s and their main idea was functionalist and democratic design for the people. Thanks to industrial production, FDB was able to manufacture high quality design furniture for ordinary people at relatively low prices.

Folke Pålsson

Folke Pålsson is a Danish designer who worked at the furniture design studio FDB (Fællesforeningen for Danmarks Brugsforeninger) in the 1960s. His J77 chair with its light, comfortable and well-balanced design was a great success: it became a design classic recognizable throughout Scandinavia. FDB is the Danish Consumer Cooperative Society, better known as Coop.

The FDB furniture department, founded in 1933, played a central role in the industrial revolution in Denmark. In 1942 Børge Mogensen was appointed Design Director of FDB and his pioneering approach was soon distinguished by a desire to create simple, elegant and practical design for mass consumption. The Folke Pålsson J77 chair is now produced by HAY, in a richer color range.
