  • Description

    PK71 consists of three nesting tables that can be stored under each other. With these tables and their ongoing 3-dimensional shape was Poul Kjærholm showing the square in all 3 dimensions in his work for the first time. They can be seen as a precursor to his larger and more complex tables. With their toy-like appearance is the small, abstract tables very dynamic and they invites you to move them around. Poul Kjærholm often stacked the bare frames as sculptural symbols to illustrate the elementary properties of his other works. The importance of PK71 is shown by the fact the tables are displayed in the permanent collection at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

    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.
