PK8™ chair

By Fritz Hansen

Regular Price: £2,046.00

Special Price £1,739.10

  • Description

    For many years, The PK8™ existed only as a prototype in the home of Hanne Kjærholm, the wife of Poul Kjærholm. The PK8 was put into production in close collaboration with Hanne Kjærholm and introduced to the public in connection with the 2007 exhibition about Poul Kjærholm, "The furniture architect", at Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, north of Copenhagen.

    The special form of the chair, with its composition of sinuous curves resembles Kjærholm's cantilevered chair from 1953, but the three legs, which shape compliments the seating element, give the chair an outstanding expression of its own. The chair is well suited as a dining chair together with the PK58 table.

  • 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.
