J110 - chair

By HAY

£219.00

  • Description

    Tall slender wooden rods make up the backrest of this Nordic and democratic version of a royal seat. The rods form a cosy shell and offer a calm space to relax. J110 is an elegant dining chair with a built-in interplay of shadow and light when the sunlight darts in and out between the rods. J110 is an updated version of a classic chair with a solid history.

    The FDB furniture series is functional design at democratic prices, born of industrial development. FDB created a strong furniture concept in 1933, and under Børge Mogensen's leadership as design director from 1942 the FDB furniture linked industrial production closely with architectural furniture design. In practical terms, the industrial approach eliminated the need for special components, as all the chairs had the same legs, just as the main emphasis was not on detailing, since the underlying ideology of making well-designed furniture accessible to the general population was the primary focus. FDB revolutionized the industry as a precursor of many of the design icons that Denmark is acknowledged for today around the world.

    The FDB series also pioneered knock-down furniture: furniture that comes in a box and is assembled by the user. Kvist Møbler produced the FDB furniture then and still does today – only now with HAY as the standard-bearer for the democratic values.

    Poul M. Volther

    Poul M. Volther (1923-2001) belonged to a generation of Danish architects with solid roots in the very best of craft. As an exponent to functionalism he was against fads and aesthetic smartness and he loved the simple manufacture of fine materials. Poul M. Volther was a trained cabinet-maker and graduate from The School of Arts and Crafts. As a teacher at The Danish School of Art and Design he has influenced hundreds of young designers' sense of craft quality. The Corona chair is without comparison his most famous design.
