Five Poul Kjærholm PK9 Chairs, Dark Brown Leather, 1985 by Fritz Hansen, Denmark

About

Five Poul Kjærholm - PK9 Dining Chairs - 1985 by Fritz Hansen, Denmark in dark brown leather. The legendary PK9 chair, designed by Poul Kjaerholm in 1960. It is said, that Kjaerholm’s incessant quest for the perfect shape led him to design the PK9--which we now know is only half-true. Kjaerholm’s genius sparkled in late 1950s as he turn’s his wife’s “tulip” (the true inspiration for the shape of the chair is derived from the imprint of his wife’s, Hanne Kjaerholm, derrière on a Danish sandy beach) into one of the most beautiful chairs ever produced. Much later in the design process, Hanne Kjaerholm sat for hours in molds of oil-based clay—all to help Poul discover the most remarkable and flawless design solution. Are you thinking what we’re thinking…..this is a work of love, by two lovers--and a chair that quite simply can’t be improved. here you go for a extremely rare set of five chairs, signed Fritz Hansen, 1985 - coming from a private collection in an absolutely mint condition. some patina to the steel frame is normal with age... in our listings you will also find the matching Pk22 lounge chairs - and the overall rare PK54 dining table, also dating 1985!

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.
