PK9 chair by Poul Kjaerholm for Fritz Hansen.

Classic Poul Kjaerholm side chair, also known as the 'Tulip chair' due to its unique shape. Three pieces of satin-brushed stainless steel act as legs and also holds the leather seating element. The inspiration for the shape was a sand imprint of his wife’s behind on the beach. Later, during the design process, Hanne Kjærholm sat in boxes of clay to find the most optimal and comfortable solution.

Fully upholstered seat shell available in a range of leather grades and colours. 3-legged base in satin-brushed stainless steel. The inner shell is made of nylon.
