FDB Møbler’s J166 Jørna armchair, designed by Poul M. Volther, is a streamlined spindle-back lounge chair from 1952. Volther designed the chair for his wife Jørna who enjoyed knitting and thus made the chair wide enough to work with long knitting needles. The Jørna armchair is made of solid oak, and its seat cushions are upholstered in high-quality leather. The curved, upward-widening spindle back gives the chair a light yet bold appearance.

Poul M. Volther

Poul M. Volther (1923-2001) was a Danish designer, who was a member of the FDB cooperative, whose aim was to create affordable furniture for everyday use. 

Volther was a trained cabinetmaker and studied later at the Arts and Crafts School in Copenhagen. As a believer in functionalism, he avoided short-lived aesthetic styles and concentrated on simple manufacture of fine materials. His best known work is the Corona chair he designed in 1961. Still today around 3000 Corona chairs are sold annually.
