C44 Round Table
Hay & Jørgen Bækmark
+ Cart

Danish maker HAY's revival of the C44 Table series includes the round version of this acknowledged classic. Debuting in the 1940s under the banner of the FDB (The Danish Consumers’ Co-operative Society), the collection was intended raise the bar for factory-produced furniture and enable thoughtful design to reacher a wider audience. C44 originator George Bækmark, part of the trio responsible for the project, emphasized uncluttered lines and unpretentious finishes. However, there's an appealing fillip of versatility in its melamine tabletop that reverses from black to white.

  • Tabletop is reversible
  • Frame: Solid beech, soap treated

“One of the most important things for our company is to make footprints of our own time,” says Rolf Hay, of his eponymous Copenhagen-based company launched in 2003 at the international furniture fair IMM Cologne.  His idea was to bring Danish design to a new creative peak that rivaled the storied 1950s and 1960s—but with a modern update. As creative director, he’s committed to nurturing young upstarts and also “exploring the twisted minds of established designers” and giving both a platform.

In practice, that means seeking out imaginative products and evaluating them on their own merits rather than first commissioning a design for certain type of item. And he says his greatest thrill is seeing a prototype for the first time. “We work in a different way to the way our parents did, but we basically live in the same way,” Rolf says. “The news is that there is nothing new, except the possibilities. And that’s great fun.”
