FDB produced chair, the poor thingy has been spray-painter

Dear all, an FDB label on this chair, but I don't know who the designer is. Also it seems it has been painted with spray, which make me hoping that the paint removal might be easier than as a wooden paint would have been used (I hope it's not as penetrating).

EDITED: designed by Folke Palsson, but still doubt the color is original, although many black examples are common on the Internet.

Thank you and best wishes,

Definitely spray-painted by an amateur. The originals that were painted were left clean and bare on the bottom surface of the seat.

There's a pretty good chance that they were painted originally, though. Some were done in lacquer base paint, others with enamel. I just refinished a set in poor condition for one of my kids this past summer and it was quite a job. Some of them were blue lacquer with severe peeling and chipping and two or three were enamel in better shape but in a different color.
