“It does not specifically reflect the period in which it was designed, which is why it has become a classic.”
Volther’s guiding principles were functionality and economical use of quality materials. Inspired by the supple strength of the human spine, and named after the wreath of light visible around the sun during a solar eclipse, the Corona remains highly distinctive in its innovative use of four separate, oblong shells, ready to envelop you in its calm, clean lines.
It featured Mike Nichols’ 1974 feature film, Carnal Knowledge. The current revival of the mid-century modern style coincided with the release of the visual feast that is the Mad Men TV series. The Corona Chair features prominently in the monochrome offices of Roger Stirling in the series.

Occasionally remove dust from the leather with a damp, lint-free cloth. Small soiled spots can be gently removed with a colourless eraser. Liquid spills should be immediately dabbed dry and wiped off with a little water. Once a year, the leather should be treated with a special leather care product, but never with any type of strong cleansing agent. Only use quality leather products which do not leave residue. Oily build-up on the leather makes it susceptible to bacteria, which can destroy the leather. Clean the stitching with a soft-bristle brush.
Make sure that your leather furniture is not positioned close to heat sources, so that it does not dry out and become brittle. In addition, we recommend that leather surfaces are not permanently exposed to intense sunlight, because direct sunlight over an extended time period can diminish the quality of the leather.
Leather can be treated occasionally with conditioners to keep it in its original state. Liquid spills should be blotted up immediately, not wiped. For daily cleaning, dust leather with a soft cloth.
