Classic Poul Kjaerholm chair, the PK8 chair was originally designed in 1978 but not put into production until much later. For many years the PK8 existed only as a prototype in the home of Hanne Kjærholm, the wife of Poul Kjærholm. The PK8 was put into production and introduced to the public in connection with the Poul Kjærholm exhibition at Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in 2007.
The special form of the chair, with its composition of sinuous curves, resembles Kjærholm’s cantilevered chair from 1953, but the three legs, which shape compliments the seating element, give the chair an remarkable expression of its own.
Shell in black or white moulded plastic with front upholstery in a range of leather grades and colours, please see pdf in Product Downloads. The base is made of anodised, satin brushed aluminium.
