As one of the pioneers of Danish functionalism, Poul M. Volter’s designs clearly bear the core of functionalism ‘form follows function’. Particularly the chair, Corona Classic, which was the original idea for the famous Corona chair, demonstrates beautiful Volther’s understanding of form.

The four rounded elliptical shaped cushions are mounted on a beautiful organic wooden frame that appears both transparent and solid. The wooden frame gives a nice modern Nordic look that adds some warmth to the chair.


The spacing between the ridge elements also allows the seated opportunity to vary its seat position by resting the arms between the different backrests.


With its modern and timeless design, Corona has demonstrated its strength and achieved classic status.

Poul M. Volther was first trained as a cabinetmaker before attending the School of Arts and Crafts in Copenhagen. He was one of his era’s greatest exponents of Scandinavian functionalism. With a starting point in functionalism’s motto ‘form follows function’, Volther designed stylistic, functional furniture where the aesthetic was often paramount.

Poul M. Volther designed the Corona chair for Erik Jorgensen in 1961. The frame of the original model was produced in solid oak in very small numbers. The following year the chair was given the look it has today, with a frame in spring steel and concentric shapes that appear to be freely suspended.
