  • Born in 1923, designer Poul M. Volther belonged to a generation of Danish creatives rooted in Scandinavian functionalism. Volther-s work is characterized by a mastery of form, as evidenced by his iconic EJ5 Corona Chair for Erik Jrgensen (1961/64). Highly collectible today, this singular piece has left an indelible mark on design history.

    Volther originally trained as a cabinetmaker before studying at the Royal Danish Academy School of Arts & Crafts in Copenhagen. Over the years, Volther also taught at the Royal Danish Academy School of Design, influencing hundreds of young designers along the way.

    In 1949, legendary architect-designer Hans Wegner (1914-2007) introduced Volther to the FBD, a Danish national cooperative association for producers of consumer goods. There, Volther worked under another Danish design great, Brge Mogensen (1914-1972), and went on to become FDB-s design director when Mogensen left in 1959. During his tenure at FDB, Volther created a range of chairs and sofas that can still be found in homes across Denmark.

    Through the course of the postwar years, Volther-s design work exhibited an aversion to short-lived trends in favor of cool, functionalist aesthetics driven by Bauhaus-influenced, rationalist design thinking. He was always eager to try new approaches and experiment with new materials. The Pyramid Chair (1953) was Volther-s first foray into foam and featured a series of elliptical cushions separated by spaces. Though this design never found success, it was inspired by time-lapse photographs of solar eclipses and, in turn, inspired the design of the famous Corona Chair. The -skeleton- that supports the oval cushions of these chairs was intended to cradle the user-s spine and provide ample comfort. The unique visual profile that resulted likely contributed to the designs- poor reception among Danes who, at the time, were not in favor of overly bold designs.

    In 1962, Volther found a partner in the then-new furniture manufacturer Erik Jrgensen. The company agreed to produce the Corona Chair with a chrome-plated steel frame. Despite the investment, this chair would not find a significant audience until 1997, when Erik Jrgensen re-launched it at the Cologne Furniture Fair in Germany, followed by the Scandinavian Furniture Fair in Denmark. One year after Volther-s death in 2001, the chair was used at the EU Summit in Copenhagen.

    Volther-s designs have been produced by many design companies, such as Munch Furniture and Frem Rjle. However, his Corona Chair is considered his most memorable design contribution. It-s been featured in countless movies, fashion shoots, and music videos.
