The ageless appeal of the J110 is why Danish house Hay decided to re-introduce this and other chairs by Poul M. Volther when he was part of the FDB cooperative (The Danish Consumers’ Co-operative Society). Poul eschewed trendiness, focusing on the ideal of functionalism above all else. A decade after he joined FDB, he was appointed director. High-quality design and an accessible price was FDB’s mission by way of transferring production to industrial means. Made of beech, the J110 suggests a lounge chair but its seat is the same height as other dining chairs making it an ideal choice.

“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.”
