Design Sleuth: Classic Danish Dining Chairs, Relaunched

Issue 71 · The Modern Kitchen · May 9, 2013

Spotted at Höst Copenhagen, a suite of variously sized (and colored) J110 chairs by Poul Volther, recently reissued by Danish company Hay.

Above: Hay recently reintroduced a trio of chairs designed by Poul M. Volther when he was part of the FDB cooperative (the Danish Consumers’ Co-operative Society). "Poul eschewed trendiness, focusing on the ideal of functionalism above all else," according to A+R Store. "A decade after he joined the studio, he was appointed director. High-quality design and an accessible price was FDB’s mission by way of transferring production to industrial means."
