A stunning set of four Poul Volther dining chairs. These elegant chairs were designed for the Danish manufacturer FDB Mobler. The chairs are very similar in style and construction to those produced by the English maker Ercol during the mid 20th century. FDB Møbler’s J46 chair is a Danish design classic from 1956. The J46 chair combines a V-shaped spindled backrest with a wide, comfortable seat and quickly found its place in many Danish homes.
Volther originally trained as a cabinetmaker before studying at the Royal Danish Academy School of Arts & Crafts in Copenhagen. Over the years, Volther also taught at the Royal Danish Academy School of Design, influencing hundreds of young designers along the way. Through the course of the postwar years, Volther’s design work exhibited an aversion to short-lived trends in favor of cool, functionalist aesthetics driven by Bauhaus-influenced, rationalist design thinking. He was always eager to try new approaches and experiment with new materials.
Poul Volther belonged to a generation of Danish creatives rooted in Scandinavian functionalism. Volther’s work is characterized by a mastery of form, as evidenced by his iconic EJ5 Corona Chair for Erik Jørgensen. Volther’s designs have been produced by many design companies, such as Munch Furniture and Frem Røjle. His famous Corona Chair is considered his most memorable design contribution. It’s been featured in countless movies, fashion shoots, and music videos.
Stylish chairs that show clear signs of age and use. Marks throughout but structurally sound.
