PK80 daybed by Poul Kjaerholm for Fritz Hansen

In an ongoing attempt to unite the sublime with the absolutely necessary, Poul Kjærholm designed the PK80 daybed. The result is one of Kjærholm’s most sophisticated and iconic designs with a striking beauty.

The daybed is a clear illustration of Poul Kjærholm’s method of refining historical models and distilling them down to the essence and demonstrating his superior ability to balance construction and choice of materials. The inspiration for the daybed came from Bauhaus, which in turn, were inspired by ancient Roman couches.

PK80 is upholstered in canvas or leathers of the collection, please see pdf in Product Downloads for colours available. Supported by a satin-brushed stainless steel frame. The purchase of the PK80 for the galleries of the Museum of Modern Art in New York, in 2004, recognises the daybed’s natural place in furniture history.
