Reclining elegance is Poul Kjærholm’s hallmark, uniting the simplicity of Nordic design with leather and comfort in a unique harmony. The PK20, from 1967, is a revered classic that continues to set new standards by pushing out any unnecessary design frippery. The curves of the leather chair wrap the lucky owner’s body in a semi-reclining hammock, with a small, classic neck bolster for resting the head.
Originally designed in 1967, the PK20 Chair is also referred to as the Easy Chair because of its relaxed design. The PK20 stays true to Kjærholm’s elegant, showcasing his curiosity of construction materials like steel.
Unlike his Scandinavian contemporaries who worked primarily with wood, Poul Kjærholm’s passion was steel. He liked to combine the cool beauty of the metal with other materials such as wood, leather, cane or marble. “Steel’s constructive potential is not the only thing that interests me; the refraction of light on its surface is an important part of my artistic work. I consider steel a material with the same artistic merit as wood and leather,” he commented.
"And we should try to keep our designs as simple as possible."
