Furniture for the people

November 5, 2014

The full story about the danish “FDB Møbler“ (translated: Coop Furniture) – from the early start in 1942 until today, where a handful of the furniture classics has been put into production again.

The book is written (in danish) by professor at Copenhagen Business School and professor of modern Danish history, Per H. Hansen.

We at Lower East, was hired to do the graphic design of the book, and as we really do love designing books, do love many of the classics from the rich danish collection of furnitures and found the story very interesting, the job was just a thrill. We think you can see that when you check and read the book.

You can buy the book in bookstores in Denmark, in Coop supermarkets and of course somewhere on the world wide web.

Here we show the frontpage and some double spreads from the book.

More info (in the danish) here.

You can buy the book here.
