By Poul Kjærholm

The light, elegant and comfortable PK1 – Poul Kjærholm’s very first dining chair – was designed in 1955 and marked the beginning of an impressive career.

Lightness and form, beautifully captured

The PK1 chair, designed by Poul Kjærholm, perfectly captures his hallmarks of function and clarity. Kjærholm became known as one of the most uncompromising furniture designers of his generation, as well as one of the finest representatives of modernism. The PK1 also serves as an outstanding example of Kjærholm’s unique ability to realize the full potential of his chosen materials, and demonstrates his search for authenticity and perfection in form, function, and execution. A complex design with a straightforward, minimalist expression, the PK1 dining chair is brought to life through expert craftsmanship, including the precise weaving of either 55 meters of flag halyard or beautifully crafted woven wicker. The pairing of the organic weaving mateiral with a dynamic steel frame results in exceptional comfort and visual lightness, making this stackable chair perfect for both classic and modern interiors. The PK1 is also available as an outdoor chair, with a stainless steel frame and light brown or black weather-resistant flag halyard.

Poul Kjærholm

Designer
Poul Kjærholm mixed his strict, modern idiom with superior quality and materials rooted in Danish craftsmanship traditions. Despite his short career as a furniture designer, Kjærholm’s craftsmanship and clear expression resulted in timeless designs with a global influence. Kjærholm became known for his functionalist steel, leather and glass furniture. He removed unnecessary ornamentation in favor of clarity and function, and avoided easy solutions and fads in his search for each material’s own language.
