A little piece of furniture history

GOLIAT armchair is designed by Poul M. Volther in 1953 for Copenhagen’s Cabinetmaker exhibition. The GOLIAT armchair has so far only been produced in quite a few copies and was rediscovered by Poul M. Volther’s son at a Swedish auction. At MAKE nordic, we are very pleased to be able to continue to contribute to history.

GOLIAT has a beautiful, minimalist look and a surprisingly good seating comfort, whether you are tall, short or just an average height. The chair looks beautiful on its own with its stylish lines, but it can also very easily be combined with other furniture to create a varied and personal expression in your home.

Poul M. Volther has created a beautiful armchair with a good backrest. You can also let your arms relax on the armrests. The high backrest has a pillow so you can sit back and relax your head in the armchair as well.

The GOLIAT chair has its own stool, which is drawn with the same line as the armchair. The sitting experience will not get any better! See the GOLIAT stool HERE

Poul M. Volther

Poul M. Volther, who was born in 1923 and died in 2001, is part of the generation of popular Danish architects who have deep roots in good craftsmanship.

His style was based on Scandinavian functionalism, which with a more modern twist found a middle ground between the Bauhas style and the classic, practical work. In doing so, he avoided being caught up in various short-lived trends while instead designing works that kept people spellbound over their beauty across time.

A good example of this is Volther’s, without comparison, most famous design – the Corona chair. In addition to this, he is also behind a number of other well-known, Danish furniture classics, such as the wicker chairs, where you see that the strictly logical design with great focus on both the seating experience and the structure of the chair, mixed with a unique modern look and flair for color and organic thought.

Poul M. Volther was a trained carpenter and furthered his education at the School of Arts and Crafts, now known as the Danish School of Design, where he also taught for several years. Here he left his mark on hundreds of young furniture architects’ sense of quality of craft.

In 1949, he was employed at FDB’s design studio with the help of 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 thousands of Danish homes, where they are still seen to this day.

We are so lucky here, at MAKE nordic, that we have three pieces of furniture by this designer, namely the beautiful GOLIAT armchair and the incredibly comfortable J111 and SOLDATEN dining table chairs.

The leather has as one of the only leather types received the Nordic Ecolabel. It is environmentally friendly, chrome-free, and only water-based paint has been used.

Leather must not be impregnated

Aniline leather
Aniline leather is a term for leather that is only tanned and possibly dyed through. The surface is completely natural and the pore holes are open. This makes the leather 100% breathable and provides the best seating comfort.

Care and Stain Removal
Like any natural material, Dunes leather looks best if you take good care of it. The leather is susceptible to grease and dirt. Ie. that most stains can be seen, giving the leather a natural and beautiful patina in the long run. The leather can be vacuumed with a soft brush. One should avoid all kinds of soap and water, leather grease, chemical products, such as: leather and saddle soap, wax or household products, as the soft and exclusive surface of leather might be damaged.

It is not necessary to treat wool as it is naturally dirt repellent.

Wool consists of fibers from sheep fleece and is due to its many good qualities an ideal material for furniture. Wool is both comfortable, durable, dirt-repellent and fire-retardant. The combination of these properties creates a material that is both soft, breathable and resists a high degree of wear. At the same time, wool stays nice for a long time, as wool resists a greater degree of dirt incl. embers from cigarettes and the like.

Care and stain removal
We recommend frequent vacuuming of the fabric to avoid stains as well as regular wiping of the fabric with a damp cloth.

A quick effort is essential to achieve the best result. Stains can be removed with the help of water, dishwashing soap, sparkling water or with the help of stain removers that are specially made for the purpose.
