Designer Poul M. Volther

Product Description

The Corona Chair by Poul M. Volther is an experimental take on Danish design. Sculptural, eye-catching and original, the Corona is a lesson in geometry. A consequent design with elliptical-shaped, upholstered seat pads descending in size. It’s an intriguing approach that challenges conventional seating, resulting in Corona’s image as a design icon coveted the world over.

Materials

Swivel lounge chair.
Seat and back of four separate pads of moulded cold cured foam, fully upholstered in fabric or leather.
Spring steel swivel base and frame.

The Corona Chair is a distinctive design coveted for its unique composition. Four elliptical-shaped seat pads constitute the back and seat. Fully upholstered and descending in size, the seat pads are affixed to a matt chrome, supportive spring-steel “spine”.

Initially referred to as the “floating chair” due to its light, airy appearance and sculptural qualities, Corona is the culmination of years of experimentation by architect and designer Poul M. Volther. Encouraged by his colleague Hans J. Wegner to work at FDB Mobler under the leadership of Borge Mogensen, who left in 1950, Volther was keen on designing a chair that would minimize the use of fabric, in short supply after WW2. After various attempts, Volther succeeded with the idea of using several cushions with open spaces in between, expressed with elegance years later with the Corona Chair.
