Icons of Design
Metal: brushed steel, Natural leather
The PK80 Daybed is the embodiment of Poul Kjærholm’s talent for refining historical models and distilling design down to its very essence. The daybed draws inspiration from a couch designed by Mies van der Rohe and Lilly Reich in 1930. It can be found today in the Museum of Modern Art and around the world as a celebrated illustration of craftsmanship and modern design. The PK collection includes chairs, stools, armchairs, sofas and beds.
A trained cabinetmaker who completed his studies at the Danish School of Arts and Crafts, Poul Kjærholm had a particular interest in construction materials; especially steel, which he considered a material deserving the artistic respect that was commonly awarded to wood.
Poul Kjærholm initiated a collaboration with furniture manufacturer Ejvind Kold Christensen in 1955, and that collaboration continued for the rest of Kjærholm’s life with the two families remaining close to this very day.
Two years after the designer’s passing, the Kjærholm trustees entrusted Fritz Hansen with the production and sales of ‘The Kjærholm Collection’– designs developed by Poul Kjærholm from 1951 to 1967.
Fritz Hansen is honoured to continue production to this day and to distribute Poul Kjærholm’s furniture to architects and private customers around the world.
Fritz Hansen history began in the 19th century. Characterized by its innovativeness, high quality of products and unique craftsmanship, this Danish brand produces icons of design since day one. From the bentwood and metal furniture from the 30s, through legendary chairs and sofas of Arne Jacobsen and Poul Kjærholm from the half and end of the 20th century to contemporary designs of Jaime Hayon. The philosophy of the brand is to create timeless designs that exude luxury and elegance.
