70 years after the launch of the first FDB furniture Hay is now taking on production of quite a few of the classic pieces. Functional and democratic design for the people was the thought behind the furniture production FDB started in the 1940’s. “This democratic thought is close to Hay’s philosophy”, says Christian Skovhus, of Icon of Denmark, brand agents for Hay in the UK.
The furniture is an important part of Danish design history and is very apt for now, a period when people have less money to spend on designs for their homes. “It has always been Hays most important task to produce quality and durable designs at a reasonable price, and that is why we are taking on this project” informs Rolf Hay.
The FDB collection from Hay consists of 5 chairs designed by Poul M. Volther, Jorgen Baekmark and Folke Paalsson as well as a table designed by Jorgen Baekmark. The furniture is made from beech and available in beech as well as in black, white, grey and coralPrices range from £118 for chairs and £237 for tables, the furniture will be available from November.
The collection will be available at the Hay store in Covent Garden
