Poul M. Volther

Poul M. Volther (1923-2001) belonged to a generation of architects with solid roots in the very best of craftsmanship. As an exponent to functionalism he focused on simple craftsmanship and fine materials rather than current trends. Poul M. Volther was a trained cabinet-maker and later 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 and their craftsmanship. The Corona chair is without comparison his most famous design. Poul M. Volther was the architectural practice leader for FDB furniture from 1950-1955, taking over from Børge Mogensen.
