Single PK-1 Dining or Accent Chair by Poul Kjærholm for E Kold Christensen

About

A single side or accent chair designed by Poul Kjærholm for E. Kold Christensen in 1955. Originally, the series PK-1, -2, and -3 referenced a complete line of steel-frame chairs with the seat material indicated by the model number (1 is done in wicker, 2 in leather, and 3 in flag halyard) though they are now all marketed under the blanket model PK-1. The chair frame itself is slight, of bent tubular steel punctuated with small discs to keep the seat cord from migrating. The chairs’ splayed legs are fitted with plastic disc glides to protect flooring. Condition: Seats have been re-roped with new linen cord and leg caps have been replaced. Dimensions: 18.5” width x 17” depth x 28” height; seat height is 16”.

About Poul Kjærholm (Designer)

A trained cabinetmaker, Poul Kjærholm’s use of industrial methods and materials in the 1960s brought a fresh, graceful, sleek new style to Danish modern design.

     At Copenhagen’s School of Arts and Crafts, Kjærholm studied under Hans Wegner and Jørn Utzon — an industrial designer and the architect of the celebrated Sydney Opera House. The latter greatly influenced Kjærholm’s furniture production techniques — although he employed natural materials such as cane and leather, to a far greater extent than his peers Kjærholm embraced the use of steel (rather than wood) framing for his chairs and tables.

     Kjærholm’s signal design was the PK 22 chair of 1956, a low-slung leather lounger on a steel base. The ideas introduced in the PK 22 — Kjærholm’s designs were named using a numeric system devised with his manufacturer, E. Kold Christensen — were refined throughout his career, as the offerings below show: the PK 11 chair of 1957, with back and armrests formed by a semicircle of ash; the capacious, richly patinated leather seat of a vintage 1961 PK 9 chair; the elegant rattan swoop of the PK 24 chaise longue (1965). The chaise longue's leather headrest, held in place by a steel counterweight, best shows Kjærholm's particular gift for combining technological advancements with a respect for traditional detailing. While respectful of the past, Poul Kjærholm's sensibility is one of optimism and expectation. His was design for those who lived with verve and élan, and confidently anticipated the future.
