Poul M. Volther’s sense of details and the great craft is maintained in the Corona Spectrum chair. I 1984 the famous Corona chair underwent an elegant transformation and was presented in a number of inspirational colour combinations, under the name Corona Spectrum.
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.
