C44 dining table is part of HAY’s 2011 relaunch of the Danish furniture
classics originally made for FDB (The Danish Consumers’Co-operative Society).
Functionalist and democratic design for the people - that was the main idea behind the furniture production started by FDB in the 1940s. By shifting to industrial production and thus deceasing the costs FDB pushed forward the availability of designer furniture for ordinary people by making high quality design furniture at relatively low prices.
Rolf Hay says, "For me the FDB collection is something special, because it marks the beginning of a time, we today know as the great Danish design era."
This dining table designed by Jørgen Baekmark is made from laquered beech wood with a reversible melamine tabletop - black on one side and white on the other.
