The PK9’s unique shape is characterised by three pieces of satin-brushed stainless spring steel that act as a column, carrying the sumptuous, soft leather seating element. Poul Kjærholm was inspired by a sand imprint of his wife’s behind from a day at the beach.
Later, during the design process, Hanne Kjærholm sat in boxes of clay to find the most optimal and comfortable solution. This chair offers the ultimate in luxury and refinement.
Materials: Fully upholstered seat shell available in a range of leather grades and colours. 3-legged base in satin-brushed stainless steel. The inner shell is made of nylon.
Dimensions: Width - 58cm x Depth - 58cm x Height - 77cm (Seat height: 43cm)

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.
