“I am trying to express the very language of the materials themselves.” -Poul Kjí¦rholm
The PK31 series from Fritz Hansen’s “Poul Kjaerholm collection” exemplifies the quality and minimalist style of Kjaerholm’s designs. This series consists of the 1-seater easy chair as well as the 2-seater and 3-seater sofas.The PK31 chair and sofa series combines elegant luxury with comfort. The collection is suitable for any environment, from lounges and waiting areas to private homes.
Poul Kjí¦rholm 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, Kjí¦rholm 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 Kjí¦rholm Collection”, developed from 1951 to 1967, designs, which are logical to the minute detail with an aura of exclusivity.
The PK31 series rest on a matt chromium-plated spring steel base. The down-filled cushions are covered in your choice of leathers.
