J77 / Designer
Folke Pålsson is a Danish designer who worked at the FDB furniture design studio in the 1960s. His J77 chair is recognisable design classic all across Scandinavia for its light, comfortable, well balanced design. FDB (Fællesforeningen for Danmarks Brugsforeninger) is the Danish Consumers Cooperative Society, more widely known as Coop. The FDB furniture department played a pivotal role in revolutionising the industry in Denmark, it was founded in 1933 and in 1942 Børge Mogensen was installed as design director. His pioneering approach was distinguished by a desire to create simple, elegant and practical design intended for mass consumption. The Folke Pålsson J77 chair is now produced by HAY, in a range of colours.
