PK9™ chair

By Fritz Hansen


  • Description

    The PK9™ is a side chair also known as the "Tulip chair" due to its unique shape. The shape characterized by the three pieces of satin-brushed stainless steel that act as a column, a set of legs and carriers of the leather seating element. The story of the design is about Poul Kjærholm's uncompromising quest for the perfect shape. The inspiration for the shape of the shell comes from the imprint of his wife's, Hanne Kjærholm, behind in the sand on the beach. Later, during the design process, Hanne Kjærholm sat in boxes of clay to find the most optimal and comfortable solution. PK9 matches the PK54™ table perfectly.

    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.
