Poul Volther (1923-2001)
Paul M. Volther was born in Denmark in 1923.
After training in carpentry, Volther studied at the Arts and Crafts School in Copenhagen. With the support of designer Hans Wegner he worked from 1949 in the FDB cooperative under the leadership of Borge Mogensen. He designed a set of Windsor chairs and a wide variety of armchairs and sofas found in many Danish homes.
Today Wolther is mainly famous for his Corona chair. The latter is made of a series of oval cushions separated by open spaces.
In fact success only came 20 years later, during a presentation at the Cologne Fair and at the Scandinavian Furniture Fair. The Corona chair was used in 2002 at the European Summit in Copenhagen.
