Everything we make needs to be at least 30 years ahead of its time; that is the average lifespan of our products, though they often last even longer. This requires a sustainable mindset rooted in a foundation of simple, timeless design. It is not unusual for a piece of our furniture to look as if it just stepped off the drawing board, when in fact it has 60 or 70 years of history behind it. In other words, even if you are the first owner of a brand-new piece of FDB Møbler furniture, you are unlikely to be its final user. Everything we produce is meant to last for generations, and not just in terms of design—our legacy and quest for maximum durability guides the choice of materials, the craftsmanship literally woven into the seats and the finger joints they sit upon, and the textiles we use. And no design finds its way into its first home without being tested at the Institute of Technology.
HIGH QUALITY THAT IS AFFORDABLE
Another tenet of FDB Møbler’s philosophy is that good quality must be accessible to most people. Therefore, our prices are not the highest—what they are is the best prices in terms of value and design. This applies to something as small as a pillow or vase, or as substantial as an ensemble of upholstered armchairs. We intend to be with you for a lifetime—from the day you buy that first piece you’ve been saving up for, till the day you take a seat at your own dining table surrounded by our iconic chairs, whether they are all alike or mixed-and-matched. We would like to find our way into the living room of anyone, in any country, who appreciates simple, beautiful and functional furniture. To them we promise to bring Danish hygge and the sort of design expression for which FDB Møbler has long been known far beyond our country’s borders.
