Folke Pålsson is a Danish designer who worked at the FDB furniture design studio in the 1960s. His J77 chair is recognisable design classic all across Scandinavia for its lightweight, comfortable, well-formed design.
The FDB furniture department played a vital part in revolutionising the industry in Denmark, it was founded in 1933 and in 1942 Børge Mogensen was installed as design director. His pioneering approach was distinguished by a desire to create minimal, sleek and functional design intended for mass consumption.
