PK1 from Carl Hansen

Poul Kjærholm was one of the leading architects of Danish modernism. In furniture design, he pursued a functionalist approach and favoured a reduced and restrained design language. As a designer, he also had a preference for steel, which he liked to combine with organic materials. Both his approach and his material preferences are expressed in the PK1 in the most beautiful way.

Poul Kjærholm's very first dining chair, the light, elegant and comfortable PK1, was designed in 1955 in the material combination of wicker and steel. The PK1, which is also stackable, has been manufactured by Carl Hansen & Søn since 2017. However, the relaunch is made with the durable and FSC™-certified paper cord. It takes an experienced weaver 15 hours and 180 metres of paper cord to make the PK1 seat.

The PK1 frame is available in stainless steel or black powder-coated steel. Felt glides are included.
