Poul M. Volther’s favorite chair

The J111 chair was designed by Poul M. Volther in 1971. Poul M. Volther won an award for his beautiful design.

This chair is both comfortable and beautiful – and therefore another good example of Poul M. Volther’s fantastic talent as a furniture architect. The chair J111 is for you who love Danish craftsmanship and want to combine timeless design with optimal seating comfort.

The minimalist J111 chair has many uses. Use it as a dining chair, in the entrance hall, in the bedroom, in your walk-in closet or as an extra chair that quickly can be moved around if you have many guests. With its wide seat and curved back, the J111 has a very high seating comfort, while the legs creates extra stability. The legs can be removed so the chair doesn’t take up too much space during transport, or if you want to keep spare chair if you need an extra seat sometimes.


A responsible chair

The J111 chair is handmade in oak from FSC®-certified forrests and other responsible sources in collaboration with Danish suppliers and manufactured at a recognized furniture factory in West Jutland. We choose FSC-certified materials out of consideration for both nature, humans and animals.

The chair is packed in FSC-certified cardboard and sent as a flat package. The legs are lightly screwed on before the chair is used. That way we avoid waste space and unnecessary air in the packaging. The transport cars have room for more furniture, and do not have to drive as many times. It provides a more environmentally friendly transport.

Poul M. Volther

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.

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.
