Poul M. Volther (1923-2001) 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. Volth
er 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 without co
mparison his most famous design.
