J81 was designed by Jørgen Bækmark in the 1950ies. The combination of the wicker seat and curved armrests makes J81 one of the most comfortable dining chairs.
The turned oak sticks, steam-bent back and armrest and the hand woven seats make this chair a classic icon that will age with grace. J81 is made in Denmark, crafted in oak and available in four different versions: white soap/natural wicker, sirka grey/natural wicker, black/natural wicker and black/black wicker.
Jørgen Bækmark was the fourth and last head of design at FDB Furniture before it closed in 1968 and he is also the only living FDB architect. FDB Furniture is considered as a piece of the Danish design heritage. FDB began to manufacture furniture in the 1940ies as a cooperative, focusing on creating good quality furniture at democratic prices. Inspired by new industrial technologies and combined with ideas on simplicity and daily functionality, FDB created classic furniture which have become iconic. One of Denmarks most famous designers, Børge Mogensen, was the first head of design of FDB Furniture.
