Product Design Info

Designer: Poul M. Volther

 

Poul M. Volther (2 January 1923 - 23 January 2001) was a Danish furniture designer who is remembered above all for his iconic Corona Chair.

 

Early life

First trained as a cabinetmaker, Volther studied furniture design at the Arts and Crafts School in Copenhagen. A believer in Functionalism, he avoided short-lived aesthetic trends, concentrating on the simple crafting of fine materials. As a teacher at Denmark's Design School, he encouraged hundreds of students to aim for high quality craftsmanship. With the support of designer Hans Wegner, he was employed from 1949 by the cooperative FDB, working in their the design studio under the leadship of Børge Mogensen. Mogensen left FDB in 1959, leaving Volther in charge. He went on to design a series of Windsor chairs, rather simpler in style than Mogensen's own. He also designed a wide variety of armchairs and sofas which can still be seen in homes throughout Denmark.

 

Art: Corona Chair

 

Corona chair was designed by Poul M. Volther and received a lot of acclaim when it was first launched in 1964. Since its making the chair has been shown in a wide variety of fashion features, film and music videos.

Corona was the chair used by the chiefs of state in Europe during the EU summit in Copenhagen in December 2002. A rare combination of organic expression and technical streamlining. The four upholstered shells give maximum support of the body with overt associations to both spinal column and ribs of the human anatomy. Due to its floating constellation Corona seems to be almost trans-parent and effortlessly blends in with the room.
