Poul Kjaerholm
(Denmark, 1929-1980)

a pair of "PK 25" easy chairs, "The Element Chair", edition E Kold Christensen, Denmark.

Steel bars with a mat finish, flag halyard.

The chair is Poul Kjaerholm's first model, drawn in 1951 and executed as his degree project in 1952. Already here, Kjaerholm seeks to reduce the material, his desire to create a pure form of a single piece of steel. Fritz Hansen made a few copies of the model in the 1950s. E Kold Christensen then took up production in 1960 and then called the chair PK25. In 1982 Fritz Hansen took over the production of Kjaerholm's furniture.
