About the PK80 Day Bed

Poul Kjærholm's PK80 is the reimagining of the classical Roman daybed. Designed in 1957, Kjærholm used steel and leather, his favourite materials, to create a design icon that is still popular today. Versatile in use, this padded couch is ideal for an afternoon snooze, or provides additional seating at a party. The STIN is available in both aniline and semi-aniline leather, and can be ordered in a range of colours, meaning you easily find a style to match your home.

The Story Behind the Poul Kjærholm PK80 Daybed

When most other Scandinavian designers were preoccupied with wood, Poul Kjærholm favoured steel, which he thought of as 'natural' material, with "the same artistic merit as wood and leather". He also liked to take historical designs and refine them down to their fundamental qualities. This combination of passions led to the creation of the PK80 Daybed in 1957. Its popularity continues to this day and the fact that it is used as seating in New York's Museum of Modern Art surely cements its place in design history.

ABOUT THE DESIGNER

Poul Kjærholm

1929-1980 (Denmark)

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."
