Design Sleuth: Classic Danish Dining Chairs, Relaunched
Average Rating: ( 0 votes)
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." Above: The chairs feature seats of the same height, which means they can be easily mixed at the dining table. Above: Made of beech, the J110 Chair is available in gray, black, red, white, and natural beech; $360 each at A+R Store in Los Angeles. Above: The beech J77 Chair is available in gray, black, red, white, and natural beech; £155 at Folklore in London. Above: The beech J104 Chair is available in gray, black, red, white, and natural beech; £185 at Folklore in London. Interested in seeing more of Norm Architects' design for Host?
