From Make Nordic's website information on the designer

Poul M Volther (1923-2001) belongs to a generation of popular Danish architects who have deep roots in good craftsmanship.

Poul M Volther’s style was based on Scandinavian functionalism, which with a modern twist found a middle ground between the Bauhaus style and the classic, practical work. In doing so, he avoided being caught up in various short-lived trends, where instead he designed works that could keep people enchanted by their beauty across time. The Corona chair is a good example of this. The Corona chair is without comparison Poul M Volther’s most famous piece of furniture. He is also behind a large number of other well-known Danish furniture classics, including the stick chairs, where you see that the strictly logical design with great focus on both the sitting experience and the structure of the chair, is mixed with a unique modern look as well as a flair for color and organic thinking.

Poul M Volther was originally a trained carpenter. He furthered his education at the School of Arts and Crafts, where he taught for many years at what is today called the Danish School of Design. Here he left his mark on hundreds of young furniture architects’ sense of the quality of the craft.

In 1949, he was employed at FDB’s studio with the help of the well-known Hans Wegner. Here he first worked under Børge Mogensen until 1959, when Mogensen left FDB and Volther became leader. Poul M Volther’s style was simple, functional and beautiful. Which has resulted in a large number of his design classics having found their way into many thousands of Danish homes, where they are still seen to this day.
