HAY J104 dining chair is part of a relaunch of the Danish furniture classics originally made for FDB (The Danish Consumers’ Co-operative Society). Functionalist and democratic design for the people - that was the main idea behind the furniture production started by FDB in the 1940s.
By shifting to industrial production and thus deceasing the costs FDB pushed forward the availability of designer furniture for ordinary people by making high quality design furniture at relatively low prices.

Jorgen Baekmark was a member of the team established at FDB Mobler by Borge Mogensen in the 1960s. FDB—the Danish Consumers Cooperative set out to develop practical and inexpensive furniture following design principles that had their origins in the German Bauhaus. Recently, furniture manufacturer HAY has begun to manufacture some of these early FDB pieces—the J104 chair, originally designed by Jorgen Baekmark in 1966, being an excellent example. The J104 range of furniture shows definite Shaker influences. Its understated simple elegance fits into any interior.
