The story behind
1942 was the year FDB Møbler was established as a furniture design studio under FDB's Arkitektkontor. It was the 28-year-old twelve-year-old Børge Mogensen who was at the forefront of this. In 1945, the first furniture came on the market under the brand name, FDB Møbler. In 1950, Børge Mogensen left the post as head of FDM's furniture office, leaving behind an organization that would leave a decisive mark on Danish furniture culture. Today, it is Coop that has the rights to some of the older designs, and they were relaunched together with new furniture series under the name FDB Møbler in 2013.
