PK1 chair - Stainless steel, Wicker

By Carl Hansen


  • Description

    Poul Kjærholm designed the PK1 - his first dining chair - in 1955. The light and elegant chair, now in production at Carl Hansen & Søn, marked the beginning of an impressive career, serving as an outstanding example of the designer's unique ability to lend vitality to steel.

    The PK1's dynamic form, the combination between the steel and the organic flag halyard, and the chair's accessibility, functionality and high comfort make it a perennial classic.

    Poul Kjærholm

    Unlike most other Danish furniture designers of the 1950s, Kjærholm used stainless steel and aluminium as the basis for his designs often combined with leather or wicker for chairs and glass or slate for tables. Inspired by the modernist work of le Corbusier and Breuer, Kjærholm's designs are highly elegant with great attention to details.

    His best work were made between the mid 1950s and late 1960s, yet the designs all have such integrity that they stand above any particular era. His most well known design is the PK22 easy chair which have been extensively used at the Copenhagen international airport Kastrup, a fitting place for an object which is truly international in its design. Poul Kjærholm became a professor at the Royal Art academy in Copenhagen in 1976.
