poul kjaerholm pk80 daybed

Design Poul Kjaerholm, 1957
Stainless steel, plywood, leather
Made in Denmark by Fritz Hansen

In an ongoing attempt to unite the sublime with the absolutely necessary, Poul Kjærholm designed the PK80 daybed. Part of Fritz Hansen's "Poul Kjaerholm collection", the PK80 is characterized by its low height and distinguished aesthetic. A sculptural form which is suitable for any environment, from the Museum of Modern Art in New York to lounges and waiting areas and private homes.

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.

PK80 is available in natural canvas as well as in a limited range of leather upholstery. The daybed rests on a painted plywood bedplate and the cushion core is made of granulated foam and hairlok (pig hair/latex). The frame is made of satin brushed stainless steel.
