PK61™ table

By Fritz Hansen

£3,023.00

  • Description

    The coffee table PK61™ is almost as elementary and minimalistic as it gets from the hand of Poul Kjærholm. Despite the extreme distillation of the structure into a set of identical elements, the square and aesthetic design has the power of a manifesto and shows Kjærholm's development from industrial designer to furniture architect. The four base elements are joined with machine screws that lend the table part of its unique look. The removable tabletop demonstrates Kjærholm's recurring principle of using gravity to keep the elements in place.

  • Technical Info

    The PK61™ tabletop is available in slate, granite, light steel-rolled marble or glass. The base is satin-brushed stainless steel.

    In 2007, the PK61A came into production, aside from the fact that this table doesn't come with a slate tabletop the PK61a has the exact same structure as the PK61. The measurements indicate the only difference between the two.

  • Designer
    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.
