Details

In an ongoing attempt to unite the sublime with the absolutely necessary, Poul Kjærholm designed the PK80™ daybed. The result is one of Kjærholm’s most sophisticated and iconic designs with a striking beauty. The daybed is a clear illustration of Poul Kjærholm’s method of refining historical models and distilling them down to the essence and demonstrating his superior ability to balance construction and choice of materials. The inspiration for the daybed came from Bauhaus, which in turn, were inspired by ancient Roman couches. PK80 is upholstered in leather and supported by a satin brushed stainless steel frame. The purchase of the PK80 for the galleries of the Museum of Modern Art in New York, in 2004, recognizes the daybed’s natural place in furniture history.

MATERIALS:

  • The frame is made of satin brushed stainless steel

MEASUREMENTS:

  • Height: 30 cm / 11.8 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.
