Description from The Line
The sublime meets the necessary. Designed by Poul Kjí¦rholm in 1957, the PK 80 daybed illustrates the designers method of refining historical models and distilling them to their essence, while balancing construction and choice of materials. The inspiration for the daybed, upholstered in rich natural leather and supported by a satin-brushed stainless steel frame, came from Bauhaus designs, which in turn, were inspired by ancient Roman couches.
