Concept

When Poul M. Volther created Corona in 1964 the chair was an obvious hit. 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.

Corona Spectrum is Corona’s new sister and an extension of a design expression that is the essence of Danish Modern and of stylish furniture taste. Corona Spectrum maintains Corona’s confident attitude but in an updated version, where the frame and upholstery either match or contrast each other. Corona Spectrum is colorful, contemporary and young.

Corona Classic is a true original. Poul M. Volther’s original concept for Corona was to create an easy chair with a wooden frame. A natural base in a natural material lending natural support to the oval pads that climb upwards like a spine to support the body, crowned by a neck rest.
