Design Sleuth: Classic Danish Dining Chairs, Relaunched

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.” The chairs feature seats of the same height, which means they can be easily mixed at the dining table.
