The Corona Chair designed by Poul Volther for Erik Jorgensen, 1990s.
Originally designed in 1962 by Poul Volther the Corona chair's sculptured form combines aesthetic appeal with superb comfort.
The distinctive elliptical sections are constructed of moulded plywood shells with CFC free cold cured foam.
Corona was light yet had a sculptural gravity that was not easily forgotten.
This combination made Corona a star in countless movies, fashion series and music videos; in fact, Corona probably has the most impressive stage career of all Erik Jørgensen’s products.
Corona’s success is partly due to its fusion of technical cool and warm and inviting form that refers directly to the human anatomy with its spine and ribs.
The 4 star stainless steel base comes with a swivel mechanism.
Upholstered in its original beige coloured leather, this piece is in excellent used condition, very minimal signs of usage with makers label to the base.
This listing is for one chair - a pair is not available.
About the designer:
Poul M. Volther (1923-2001) was a Danish furniture and lighting designer. Volther was first trained as a cabinetmaker, and he would later go on to graduate as an architect from the school of Arts & Craft in Copenhagen (København).
Volther was part of a very influential group of Danish designers who valued functionalism above all else.
He was against fads and trendy arrangement, but he loved simple practical designs manufactured out of fine materials.
