tk8 daybed

Design Thomas Bo Kastholm, 2009
Steel, wood, upholstery
Made in Denmark by Carl Hansen & Son

A simple, timeless and elegant sofa - or daybed - TK8 both fits nicely in a home and in public buildings such as airports or museums. With this dayBed, Kastholm wanted to create a simple design with clean lines that also showcase his favorite materials: leather and steel. The result is a light bench with an almost minimalist construction.

The legs, made of hardened steel with chrome finish, are produced without welding and the frame is assembled with just a few screws. Upholstery in the customer's choice of leather over flame retardant foam: the wooden platform is available in ash, beech, oak or walnut. The DayBed is available in two sizes.

TK8-190: 14.2" h | 35.4" d | 74.8" L
TK8-200: 16.9" h | 39.4" d | 78.7" L | *can be bolted to the floor
optional pillow: 27.9" L | 4.7" h

Kastholm & Fabricius

Trained cabinet-maker Preben Fabricius met blacksmith Jorgen Kastholm at the School for Interior Design and found a common approach to furniture design - never wanting to compromise on aesthetics. In 1961, the pair set up a design studio in a Gentofte cellar without any firm arrangements with manufacturers, but by ‘65 they had secured a lucrative deal with German furniture manufacturer Alfred Kill. The next year, their international breakthrough came at the Cologne Fair with a whole series of office and home furniture, leading to orders from ten large furniture concerns. Among their most successful works were the Tulip Chair, Grasshopper Chair, and Scimitar Chair, which highlighted their style of minimalist designs, both attractive and comfortable, usually in steel and leather. The pieces of furniture they produced during their seven-year period of cooperation from 1961 to 1968 were so distinctive that many are still produced today as classics.
A workshop in Odense, Denmark in 1908, was the birthplace of the Carl Hansen company. With a fast reputation for quality work, Carl Hansen confidently took on large projects like dining room sets and bedroom suites. However, Hansen eventually learned to capitalize on scaled-back versions of his popular sellers, realizing that their strongest asset was its hand craftsmanship and rationality. Carl Hansen invited Hans Wegner to create designs in 1949, launching a mutually beneficial relationship bringing success to the company and exposure to the young Wegner. Wegner was still relatively unknown, but soon gained wide acclaim that continues to today.
