Poul M. Volther has designed the SAKS chair, which is a part of our Kristensen Chairs.
Poul M. Volther was a Danish furniture designer who belonged to a generation of designers and architects who pioneered the danish furniture industry, with a renewed focus on high quality materials and craft. Poul M. Volther is above all remembered for his iconic Corona Chair and his work with FDB in creating more affordable designer furniture for the general public. As a true believer in pure functionalism, he avoided short-lived aesthetic trends, concentrating on the simple crafting with quality materials. A vision he also encouraged hundreds of designstudents to aim for, while he were lecturing at The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts. — Poul M. Volther Furniture designer 1923—2001
