Fritz Hansen PK8 Chair


For many years, The PK8™ chair existed only as a prototype in the home of Hanne Kjærholm, the wife of Poul Kjærholm. The PK8 was put into production in close collaboration with Hanne Kjærholm and introduced to the public in connection with the 2007 exhibition about Poul Kjærholm, "The furniture architect", at Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, north of Copenhagen.

    Designed By

    Poul Kjaerholm was a trained carpenter and continued his studies at the Danish School of Arts and Crafts. He had a particular interest in different construction materials; especially steel which he considered a natural material with the same artistic fineness as other natural materials. He was employed at Fritz Hansen for about a year, where he designed a number of note-worthy furniture pieces - "The Kjærholm Collection", developed from 1951 to 1967 these designs have an aura of exclusivity.
