DESCRIPTION:
A great little chair by Jørgen Bækmark FDB. Danish and other Scandinavian designers were gratly influenced by the American Shaker movement, most notably the designers that worked for the Danish Furniture Co-op (FDB) such as Borge Mogensen, Poul Volther, Ejvind Johansson and Jørgen Bækmark. FDB's mandate was to provide affordable, well designed furniture for the mass Danish market and the Shaker movement provided influence to accomplish this. This particular chair is a simple but functional piece providing a variety of uses. Whether used as a dining, occasional or desk chair, it performs well in all cases. The deep backrest is supported by solid wood dowels and also acts as a short armrest. Its constructed of mainly solid beech, with a laminated beech seat, and painted a nice chocolate brown colour. Fully stamped with the FDB logo. This chair would be a great addition to any modern environment.
