DesignerSørensen Leather

CLASSIC was specially developed for the famous furniture manufacturer Fritz Hansen. In fact, it’s Fritz Hansen’s leather of choice – exclusively from Sørensen Leather – for an array of iconic designer furniture that you see in museums, galleries and private residences around the globe.

One of CLASSIC’s many advantages is that it exudes richness and luxury. CLASSIC has a more uniform surface, due to the fact that the leather is slightly buffed and printed. Many designers and architects prefer a surface that has this kind of beauty with continuity they can count on.

A bit thicker and more robust than other leathers, CLASSIC is designed for endurance. It has an uncanny knack for hardly showing signs of aging, which explains why people who design classics – design with our CLASSIC leather.

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.
