Poul M. Volther

Poul Volther was a Danish designer and educator (at Denmark’s Design School) who was responsible for a number of notable mid-century furniture designs, including chairs, armchairs and sofas.

Trained as a cabinet maker and furniture designer at The Arts and Crafts School in Copenhagen, he was a key proponent of functionalism and specifically focused on applying craft techniques to fine quality materials. He was employed as a designer at FDB in 1949 and later went on to become the head of design.

The FDB furniture department played a pivotal role in revolutionising the industry in Denmark, it was founded in 1933 and in 1942 Børge Mogensen was installed as design director. His pioneering approach was distinguished by a desire to create simple, elegant and practical design intended for mass consumption.
