Design Poul Kjaerholm, 1952
Pressure molded veneer shells, cinnabar red spacers
Made in Germany by Fritz Hansen

Poul Kjærholm's one-of-a-kind PK0 A™ chair was designed in 1952, at the very beginning of the Danish designer's tenure at Fritz Hansen. Highlighting the range of his talent as a furniture designer, the curved chair - now reissued in Oregon pine or black colored ash with cinnabar red spacers - is a functional sculpture and a seminal piece of modern design history.

Poul Kjærholm had a particular interest in various construction materials; especially steel, which he considered a natural material. He was a trained carpenter who continued studies at the Danish School of Arts and Crafts. He moved on to work at Fritz Hansen, for about a year, where he designed a number of noteworthy chair prototypes. In 1955, Kjærholm started collaborating with manufacturer Ejvind Kold Christensen, which lasted until his 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.
