Design Poul Kjaerholm, 1965.
Steel, wicker, leather. Made in Denmark by Fritz Hansen.
The PK24 chaise lounge from Fritz Hansen's "Poul Kjaerholm collection". Simple elegance, a typical Kjærholm design - with the combination of steel and wicker with an adjustable, leather headrest - in an exclusive and minimalist design. The discrete and elegant PK24 chaise stands as an icon for Poul Kjærholm’s work.
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.
