|Poul M. Volther|
In 1949 his close friend Hans Wegner helped him get a position with FDB design studio, which was headed by Børge Mogensen. Eventually Volther was made head architect of the firm.
Volther later became a teacher at the Danish School of Arts and Crafts, where he influenced hundreds of future architects and designers.
He is best known for his Corona chair, which was introduced in 1964. It was conceived three years earlier and produced in oak, but the 1964 version was made of steel. In 2002, one year after Volther died, it was chosen as the chair for heads of state at the European Union Summit.
