Description from Finnish Design
J77 dining chair, designed by Folke Pålsson, is a classic wooden chair made of solid beech. The wide seat and curved spindle back create a comfortable seating pose, and J77 chair’s classic design honours the traditions of Scandinavian design.
J77 dining chair is part of Hay’s 2011 relaunch of the Danish furniture classics originally made for FDB, the Danish Consumers’ Co-operative Society.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.
