FDB Møbler's J48 chair is a Danish design classic by Poul M. Volther from 1951. Created during the golden age of Danish design, the chair boasts a distinctive look dominated by the three horizontal lines that form the backrest – J48 can be thought of as a predecessor for another famous design by Volther, the Corona lounge chair. The lightweight J48 chair will suit dining tables of various different styles, and it also makes a characterful centrepiece in other home environments.

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.
