Jorgen Baekmark

Jorgen Baekmark was a member of the design team at FDB Mobler, established by Borge Mogensen in the 1960s. FDB (the Danish Consumers Cooperative) set out to develop practical and inexpensive furniture following design principles that had their origins in the German Bauhaus movement. Recently, Danish furniture manufacturer HAY has begun to manufacture some of these early FDB pieces. The J104 chair, originally designed by Jorgen Baekmark in 1966, shows definite Shaker influences.
