The iconic dining chair J46 was designed back in 1956. At that time it was a break with the heavy dining chairs. It is particularly recognizable for the v-shaped back and quickly found a place in thousands of Danish homes mostly because it is a comfortable chair for both the big and the small while not filling the world. In the 1970s, it was re-launched in strong colors - and it was a very natural first choice when FDB Furniture was relaunched in 2013. With 12 different colors, it still finds a natural place in many Danish dining rooms.
Poul M. Volther became director of FDB Møller's drawing room after Børge Mogensen and was the company's second design manager. He followed Børge Mogensen's thoughts and torn ambitions to furnish the Danes home with functional and simple furniture of the highest craftsmanship and architectural quality. With an education as a furniture cutter and furniture architect, Poul M. Volther was highly qualified to carry on both design and crafts.
Materials and production:
The seat is made of molded beech. The back, legs and base are of solid beech. The wood used is FSC-certified from European forests.
Since wood is a natural material, shade differences may occur, even on the individual furniture. In 2013, the chair was adapted and adjusted to the size and comfort of the day.
