PK24™ wicker chair

By Fritz Hansen

£11,792.00

  • Description

    The PK24™ chaise longue chair, with its easy curves and organic shape, stands out as perhaps the most recognizable chair in Poul Kjærholm's work. Inspiration for this chair comes from the Rococo period and the French chaise longue – long chair – that featured the same curve and size. The chair is a prime and almost extreme example of Kjærholm's principle of designing with independent elements. Consequently, the chair has no physical connection between the main parts, which are instead kept together by gravity and the friction between the elements. Kjærholm also labelled the PK24™ the "Hammock Chair" to stress that the chair functioned by suspending the body between two points. The base of the PK24™ is in satin-brushed stainless steel, the seat is available in wicker and leather, both versions includes a leather headrest.

    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.
