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. The Corona chair’s sculptured form combines aesthetic appeal with superb comfort. The concentric shapes on the backrest can also be used as armrests. Manufactured under license in Denmark by Erik Jorgensen.
Poul M. Volther belonged to a generation of architects with solid roots in the very best of craft. As an exponent to functionalism he was against fads and aesthetic smartness and he loved the simple manufacture of fine materials. Poul M. Volther was a trained cabinet-maker and later he graduated from The School of Arts and Crafts. As a teacher at The Danish School of Art and Design he has influenced hundreds of young designers’ sense of craft quality. The Corona chair is his most famous design.
