Details

In 1956, Poul Kjærholm created the PK61™ coffee table as a complement to the PK22™ lounge chair. The PK61™ coffee table is about 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 craftsman to furniture designer. 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.

MATERIALS:

  • Base is satin brushed stainless steel with an anthracite zinc coating
  • Table top is Petra marble, an extremely strong type of marble with a matte polished surface that makes it easy to maintain

MEASUREMENTS:

  • Height: 32 cm / 12.6 inch
  • Length: 80 cm / 31.5 inch
  • Width: 80 cm / 31.5 inch

Poul Kjaerholm

Denmark, 1929 - 1980

Poul Kjærholm was a trained carpenter and continued his studies at the Danish School of Arts and Crafts. He had a particular interest in different construction materials; especially steel which he considered a natural material with the same artistic fineness as other natural materials. Poul Kjærholm was employed at Fritz Hansen for about a year, where he designed a number of noteworthy chair prototypes.

In 1955 Poul Kjærholm initiated his collaboration with manufacturer Ejvind Kold Christensen, which lasted until Poul Kjærholm's death in 1980. In 1982, Fritz Hansen took over the production and sales of "The Kjærholm Collection", developed from 1951 to 1967, designs, which are logical to the minute detail with an aura of exclusivity.

In 2007 Fritz Hansen added two new pieces to the Kjærholm Collection. Pieces that were never in production before, the PK8™ side chair and PK58™ dining table.
