J107 Chair Natural

The FDB furniture series is functional design at democratic prices, born of industrial development. FDB created a strong furniture concept in 1933, and under BíŸrge Mogensenäó»s leadership as design director from 1942 the FDB furniture linked industrial production closely with architectural furniture design.

Poul M. Volther created this chair before he gained world fame with his easy chair Corona, but seen in the larger context of his work as a furniture designer, it matches his overall expression, including the oval shapes and the interplay of open and solid elements, as if the gaps are as much a part of the design as the actual seat surface. This three-legged FDB classic is less well-known, but that only makes it all the more interesting.
