Lightness and form, beautifully captured

The PK1 chair, designed by Poul Kjærholm, perfectly captures his hallmarks of function and clarity. Kjærholm became known as one of the most uncompromising furniture designers of his generation, as well as one of the finest representatives of modernism. The PK1 also serves as an outstanding example of Kjærholm’s unique ability to realize the full potential of his chosen materials, and demonstrates his search for authenticity and perfection in form, function, and execution. A complex design with a straightforward, minimalist expression, the PK1 dining chair is brought to life through expert craftsmanship, including the precise weaving of either 55 meters of flag halyard or beautifully crafted woven wicker. The pairing of the organic weaving mateiral with a dynamic steel frame results in exceptional comfort and visual lightness, making this stackable chair perfect for both classic and modern interiors.

Poul Kjaerholm was born in 1929 in Øster Vrå, Denmark. He finished his apprenticeship as a cabinet maker with Grønbech in 1948 and graduated at the School of Arts and Crafts in Copenhagen in 1952 with a.o. the PK 25 chair that is still produced by Fritz Hansen.

Poul Kjaerholm was very articulate and with natural authority he started an outstanding career as an educator in the same year (1952) but continued to study with Prof. Erik Herløw and Prof. Palle Suenson.

From 1955, the year he did the famous PK 22, for which he received the Lunning Award in 1958, he became assistant at the Royal Danish Academy of Arts in Copenhagen and lecturer in 1959. He became head of the Institute for Design in 1973 and finally professor in 1976 until his premature dead in 1980. Over all these years he designed dozens of chairs, long chairs, and tables that became landmarks for Danish furniture design, including the famous PK 24 long chair. Most of his furniture was initially and until 1982 produced by his friend E. Kold Christensen in Hellerup.

A wide selection of that production has been part of the Fritz Hansen collection since.
